Children of Alcoholics Week
12-18 February 2012

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism reports that as many as 1 in 4 children younger than age 18 is exposed to family alcohol abuse or dependence. The people hurt most by drugs and alcohol don't even use them; they are the CHILDREN of alcoholics and other drug dependent parents.

Children of Alcoholics Week is a Nationwide and International campaign designed to raise awareness of the difficulties faced by children of alcohol dependent parents. COA Week celebrates the recovery of the many thousands of children (of all ages) who have received the help they needed to recover from the pain and losses suffered in their childhood. COA Week also offers hope to those still suffering from the adverse impact of parental alcohol and drug addiction through educational programs and other available resources.
