If You Have an Alcoholic Mother, Father, Brother, Sister, or Friend, then Alateen Can Help You
aLCOHOLISM IS A FAMILY DISEASE
When the cycle of addiction affects a mother or father; brother or sister; or a friend, it can feel like life is getting out of control. The stress of dealing with alcoholism and addiction is too much for most people to handle alone, but with the support and understanding of other teenagers who are dealing with the same problems, it can become manageable.
Group meetings are hosted by an adult called a "sponsor." Every adult sponsor is a member of Al-Anon, and has intimate experience dealing with the addiction of a loved one themselves. Meetings are generally about 45 minutes to an hour long and are hosted all across the Rhode Island.
