Adult Children of Alcoholics®& Dysfunctional Families

We are glad you are here. Recovery is possible.

Welcome to Adult Children of Alcoholics®& Dysfunctional Families

Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACA)/Dysfunctional Families is a Twelve Step, Twelve Tradition program of people who grew up in dysfunctional homes.

We meet to share our experience of growing up in an environment where abuse, neglect and trauma infected us. This affects us today and influences how we deal with all aspects of our lives.

ACA provides a safe, nonjudgmental environment that allows us to grieve our childhoods and conduct an honest inventory of ourselves and our family—so we may (i) identify and heal core trauma, (ii) experience freedom from shame and abandonment, and (iii) become our own loving parents.

ABC 18-19th May 2024

The ABC is happening on the 3rd weekend of May. This is an annual meeting where delegates discuss ballot proposals and vote on matters affecting ACA.

If your group would like to be part of this event, please elect a delegate and ensure that this person registers by May 13th.

More information on the Conference Page.
