I am a co-sponser of an Alateen group and the kids use this book constantly...I purchased my own copy in addition to the copies owned by the group...it is chocked full of great stories illustrating the experience, strength and hope of the 12 step program...as an adult, I have many resources known as conference approved literature but I also read this book for my own journey...it is very healing to an adult who has issues from childhood and teenagehood...

As an adult child of an alcoholic, I never realized how affected I was by the disease of alcoholism. My fatter died sober. I thought that alcoholism destruction stopped with the cessation of alcohol. I did. It know that it is The unmanageability of life. That unmanageability of life coupled with over whelming desires to fix control and " save" another person are often at the core of the alcoholic / addictive mind. Learning to understand that alcoholism / Addiction is a disease not a moral choice can save a persons life. Learning that " did not. Cause it. ; That I can not cure it ; that I can not change it, but I can contribute are mDe Lear through the words in this book.
Reading the Alateen books gives me language for those feelings and emotions. It is very insightful for a older woman to identify completely with the thoughts of a teen.. It gives me language for deep seeded emotions, most of whom I did not even know I had
Alanon and Alateen based on the AA Big book model of 12 step recovery are perhaps among the best tools for for dealing with the ravages that addiction brings to all who are affected by it.
