I'm not talking about Ala-teen. I mean a bonafied AA meeting specifically for teens to young adults. We're trying to find one with much difficulty. Does anyone have any experience with them? My sister in law told me that many of the younger adults who attend those meetings have cross addictions going on. I know I must sound so ignorant when I say this, but that worries me - the last thing difficult child needs is to be introduced to other addictions. Her personality type is that she would be enthralled by this. Her new counselor suggested that she attend an AA meeting or two and chose one that is really far far away. difficult child told me that she liked the idea it was far away because she really didn't want to run the risk of seeing someone she knew locally, which I totally understand, but this meeting is on Wed 8AM and about an hour away. That seems a little too much to me. Especially considering the time & day, and that difficult child lost her car till Sept 4th when school begins (she was ticketed for having beer in her possession - $136). She may even lose her license for 150 days apparently, but we don't know for sure yet. I am not so sure she's an alcoholic, but I can see her headed that way. Plus, our family is predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse, so overall I think it would be at least a good thing for her to learn a thing or two and just hear what others have to say. Maybe I don't know all of her encounters with alcohol so I really could be in the dark on this with her. She said she doesn't feel like she's "out of control with alcohol - YET" - but that she feels she "could become out of control". Her words. Well, any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
