Αλ-Ανών ALANON GREECE Al-Anon

Family Groups

ALANON GREECE


Alateen is:

a fellowship of young Al-Anon members, usually teenagers, whose lives have been affected by alcoholism in a family member or close friend.
We believe that alcoholism is a family disease because it affects all the members emotionally and sometimes physically. Although we cannot change or control our parents, we can detach from their problems while continuing to love them.
We do not discuss religion or become involved with any outside organizations. Our sole topic is the solution to our problems. We are always careful to protect each other's anonymity as well as that of all Al-Anon and AA members.
By applying the Twelve Steps to ourselves, we begin to grow mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We will always be grateful to Alateen for giving us a wonderful, healthy program to live by and enjoy.

Purposes of Alateen

Young people come together to Alateen to:
·       share experience, strength and hope with each other
·       discuss their difficulties
·       learn effective ways to cope with their problems
·       encourage one another
·       help each other understand the principles of the Al-Anon program

Alateen members learn

·       compulsive drinking is a disease
·       they can detach themselves emotionally from the drinker's problems while continuing to         love the person
·       they are not the cause of anyone else's drinking or behavior
·       they cannot change or control anyone but themselves
·       they have spiritual and intellectual resources with which to develop their own potentials,         no matter what happens at home
·       they can build satisfying and rewarding life experiences for themselves
