Adult Children of Alcoholics Support Groups

Mutual support groups whose members are adults who were reared by or had contact in their formative years with a parent or parent figure who had an alcohol use disorder and, as a result, have internalized both the excessive alcohol consumption and codependency patterns of coping which may interfere with positive adjustment in adult life. The groups meet in-person, by telephone or via the Internet, and allow participants to share their experience, strengths and hopes to solve the problems they have in common.
