Alateen is part of the Al-Anon Family Groups and is for teens that have been affected by someone else’s drinking.
Although the age range is usually 13-18, each group can decide if they will include members younger than 13. As members approach the age of 18 they should be encouraged to transition into Al-Anon while still attending Alateen meetings.
If there isn’t an Alateen meeting in your area, Alateens are welcome to attend any Al-Anon meetings. Click here to find an Alateen or Alateen meeting; or download/view the list of Ontario South Alateen meetings below.
Members seeking information on how to register an Alateen group, become an Alateen sponsor or a Supportive Al-Anon Member (SAM) should consult their Group Representative or District Representative.
You can find more information about Alateen on our World Service Office website.
