Alateen is for teenage relatives and friends of alcoholics. Alateen is part of Al-Anon. We believe alcoholism is a family disease that affects everyone in the family. Alateen meetings are for 12-17 year olds. They meet to share their experiences of having, or having had, a problem drinker in their lives. They help and support each other.
Alcohol Focus Scotland is the national charity working to prevent and reduce alcohol harm.
We want to see fewer people have their health damaged or lives cut short due to alcohol, fewer children and families suffering as a result of other people's drinking, and communities free from alcohol-related crime and violence.
Have a problem with alcohol? There is a solution. A.A. has a simple program that works. It's based on one alcoholic helping another.
Our primary purpose is to stay free from cocaine and all other mind-altering substances, and to help others achieve the same freedom.
We neither condemn nor condone drug use: we exist to reduce harm, challenge perceptions and help people make positive choices about their use of cannabis, stimulant and other social drugs and sexual health by providing non-judgemental, credible and up to date information and support.
When someone is ready to start drinking less, Drinkaware is ready to support them. We give the full picture of what drinking does to their mind and body.
We offer information and advice to help people decide which practical changes are right for them and give tips and advice to form new habits and make those changes stick. And because we want people to be protected from alcohol harm, we take what we’ve learned about helping people cut back and use the evidence to promote a world where it’s easier to drink less.

The mission of DrugWise follows very much in the tradition of DrugScope – and for those of you with long memories, its predecessor – the Institute for the Study of Drug Dependence – that is to provide drug information which is topical, evidence-based and non-judgemental – and to promote this through media work, public speaking and lecturing.
Families Anonymous is a world-wide fellowship of family members and friends affected by another’s abuse of mind-altering substances, or related behavioural problems.

The Fellowship is a self-help organisation with a programme based on the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions first formulated by Alcoholics Anonymous.
