A 12-Step Program for Family & Friends of Addicts

What is Narateen?

Narateen groups, which are part of the Nar-Anon fellowship, are formed to provide support to teenage family members and friends of addicts. A Narateen group is a safe environment where teenagers can share and work on their recovery.

Through group meetings, young people learn effective ways of coping from each other, while gaining some peace of mind and hope for a better way to live. Members help one another by sharing their experiences, strength, and hope.

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, and you can always ask questions after meetings. We understand how you feel, so know that it's a great relief to learn more effective ways to cope with this disease. And remember, you're no longer alone.


If there isn't a group near you, please visit:
