Al-Anon & Alateen
For over 50 years, Al-Anon (which includes Alateen for younger members) has been offering hope and help to families and friends of alcoholics. It is estimated that each alcoholic affects the lives of at least four other people...alcoholism is truly a family disease. No matter what relationship you have with an alcoholic, whether they are still drinking or not, all who have been affected by someone else's drinking can find solutions that lead to serenity in the Al-Anon/Alateen fellowship.

SafeTeen: powerful alternatives to violence
It is becoming evident that more and more adolescents, including girls, are resorting to violence as a method of solving disputes.
