Try an Alateen chat meeting



Chat live with other teens! Young people aged 13 to 18 who have been affected by someone else’s drinking are invited to share experience, strength and hope with other teens from across the U.S. and Canada.

Registration is required. Just follow the simple directions on the registration page. You will be asked to “click back” from an e-mail during the registration process.

Chat meetings are moderated, and teens can only chat when the adult Alateen Group Sponsors are present. At this time, you can only access the chat meetings on a computer (rather than on mobile devices).

The meeting schedule is posted on the registration page.

Alateen Chat Safety

The Alateen chat rooms are administered by the Al-Anon Family Group Headquarters, Inc., and hosted by Areas (states/provinces) in our U.S./Canada structure. The meetings are the only on-line meetings eligible to use the Alateen name. Safety features include:

  • Teens aged 13 to 18 can register to attend the Alateen chat meetings.
  • Alateen registration is required, with a valid e-mail address.
  • Once registered, teens can use their screen name and password to access meetings in all of the Alateen chat rooms.
  • Each chat room is hosted by one of the Areas (state/province), and the chat meetings’ Alateen Group Sponsors are certified Al-Anon Members Involved in Alateen Service (AMIAS) from that Area.
  • Two Alateen Group Sponsors are present for each meeting.
  • The Alateen sharings are screened by the Alateen Group Sponsors.  This happens very quickly, with no delay; the Sponsors make sure that no personal information or inappropriate language is used in the room.
  • Adult Al-Anon members should contact their Area Alateen Coordinator for information on their Area’s participation in the Alateen chat meetings.
