Alateen Guidelines

Starting an Alateen Group (G-19)

Starting an Alateen group is a spiritual undertaking. It takes time, commitment, the support of one or more Al-Anon groups, and patience.

An area convention is an occasion for Al-Anon and Alateen members to gather for fun and fellowship, to celebrate their beginnings, enhance their understanding of the program, and to find ways to attract new members.

Alateen Safety Guidelines (G-34)

Alateens are members of the Al-Anon fellowship who have suffered from the effects of a loved one’s alcoholism. They have come to Alateen seeking recovery. Before recovery can take place, an environment of trust and safety must exist.
