If you're a teen and someone important to you is an addict, you can find support in a Narateen group. Narateen is designed for teen Nar-Anon members.
Through group meetings, we learn each other's effective ways of coping, while gaining some peace of mind and hope for a better way to live. We help each other by sharing our experience, strength and hope. This way we feel free to say what's on our minds and in our hearts.
To protect everyone's anonymity, we only use first names. The names and stories shared in confidence aren't repeated outside of group meetings. You won't be forced to speak, but you can always ask questions after meetings. We understand how you feel, so know that it's a great relief to learn about more effective ways to cope with this disease. And remember, you're no longer alone.
What is Narateen?
Narateen provides support and hope to young people whose lives have been
affected by a relative or friend's addiction. Narateen is a part of the worldwide fellowship of Nar-Anon Family Groups, a
twelve step program.
Narateen meetings are facilitated and monitored by experienced Nar-Anon members.
