Children of Alcoholics Week

February 13 to 19, 2011

An estimated 25 percent of all children in the United States (about 27.8 million) are affected by or exposed to a family alcohol problem. SAMHSA supports the National Association for Children of Alcoholics (NACoA) during its Children of Alcoholics (COA) Week. 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, and it offers hope to those still suffering from the adverse impact of parental alcohol and drug addiction.

Become an advocate of support and assistance for the children of alcoholics.

Teensavers supports SAMSHA and the NACoA.

Remember, if you know someone with a drinking or a drug abuse problem, get them help immediately.   If you are unsure if your child is using drugs or alcohol, you can get home drug test kits and alcohol detectors at
