You may come in contact with students who are affected by someone else's drinking. Frequently students do not realize that their relationship to an alcoholic could be a factor in their problems. If you know or suspect that a problem drinker is affecting your students, we urge you to suggest Alateen as part of your Assistance Program. Also, we may provide Alateen speakers to share their stories with your students, as well as a booth for health fairs, including information pamphlets (in English and Spanish) and video.
Alateen is for young people whose lives have been affected by someone else's drinking. Young people in Alateen meet to discuss their common problems, exchange experiences, and encourage one another. They help each other learn effective ways of coping with their own personal problems, and they find that applying the Al-Anon/Alateen principles can help them in their daily lives.
Alateen is a part of Al-anon, and has an adult Al-Anon member present to actively sponsor each meeting. There are no dues or fees for membership and no appointment is required.
We hope you find the enclose literature helpful. If you need further information please e-mail us or call 214-363-0461 Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 3 PM.
