Alateen Meetings 

There’s a new meeting taking place at the Bangor Area Recovery Network.It’s called Alateen, and it’s for young people whose lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking.Organizers say often when teens grow up in a household with alcohol problems they repeat those mistakes.This is the first time in nearly twenty years that this program has been offered in the area.”This type of thing, this peer support is the cheapest thing going. So why not let the community be able to support these people and what they need?””If there is support out there that can be had then we can curb that type of destructive behavior and make very viable citizens out of them. Straighten their lives out, but that’s very difficult for a teen to do on their own.”To take part in the meetings call the Bangor Area Recovery Network at 561-9444.
