Narateen

 
Anyone who feels their life is or has been affected by close contact with an addict is eligible for membership in Nar-Anon. Narateens are members of the Nar-Anon fellowship and, as the name implies, Narateen is designed for members in their teens.
If you are a teenager and someone important to you is an addict, you can find help by attending Narateen meetings. If there is no group near you, talk to someone in a Nar-Anon meeting and ask if they would be willing to sponsor a Narateen group.
Through group meetings, we learn from each other effective ways of coping, while at the same time gaining some peace of mind and hope for a better way to live. Narateen members help one another by sharing their experience, strength and hope.
We use first names only. To protect the anonymity of all Nar-Anon and Narateen members, the names of those in attendance and stories shared in confidence should not be repeated outside the meetings. By sharing experience, strength and hope in the meetings, help and support can be found for the problems caused by addiction. Only in this way can we feel free to say what is on our minds and in our hearts. This is how we help one another in Narateen.
You will not be forced to speak, but you can ask questions after the meeting. We do understand how you feel. It is a great relief to learn there are more effective ways to cope with this disease. We are no longer alone.
