In Alateen we focus on our own program rather than outside issues such as religion, politics, social truyền thông, or other Twelve Step programs. There are no dues for membership. Alateen is self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions. Alateen has one purpose: to help young people affected by someone else’s drinking. We are careful to protect each other’s anonymity as well that of all Al-Anon & A.A. members.
