Fraser Valley – While the opioid crisis rages on, alcoholism seems to take a back seat in the substance abuse discussion.
Arguably, Alcoholism is just as deadly and you can make plenty of arguments over the “gateway drug” theory
Alateen is a 12 Step Program (one of many programs) that help young people deal with family and friends who are alcoholic.
Children of Alcoholics (COA) Awareness Week runs from February 10-16, 2019. This week is dedicated to raise awareness of the help that children of alcoholics of all ages can receive in local Al-Anon meetings, and Alateen meetings (for teens), by sharing Al-Anon WSO and Alateen WSO posts and pages.
In Abbotsford – Alateen is Tuesday night at 7:15PM at the Home Society, 31581 South Fraser Way.
In Chilliwack – Alateen is Tuesday nights at 7 PM at the Seniors Centre – Victoria and College.
