The National Association for Children of Alcoholics

Description

Providing information, advice and support for everyone affected by a parent's drinking. 

When a parent has a drink problem, it affects the whole family, and can be especially difficult for children and young people.

You can be a child of an alcoholic at 1 or 101. Whatever your age, it doesn't change the fact that your parent, step-parent or carer is, or has been, dependent on alcohol, along with the problems this brings.

If you would like to talk to someone, our free confidential helpline is here for you.
  • Information and ongoing support
  • For all ages - there is no lower or upper age limit to be affected by your parent's drinking and sometimes the problems only become apparent in adulthood. You can be affected regardless of whether you are still living with them, whether they are still drinking or even if they are still alive or not.
  • Phone or email
  • Your call won't show up on a landline bill
  • You can tell us as little or as much as you want
  • There is no need to give us your name

Nacoa was founded to address the needs of children growing up in families where one or both parents suffer from alcoholism or a similar addictive problem. This includes children of all ages, many of whose problems only become apparent in adulthood.
