TV show - Under The Influence.
In keeping with Al-Anon’s Public Relations policies, the WSO cooperates with outside entities but does not endorse, oppose, or affiliate with them. Al-Anon’s World Service Conference approved policy, which authorizes the WSO to make media-related announcements to the fellowship, is: “Whenever national publicity on Al-Anon/Alateen may be of interest to local groups, they are, if possible, notified in advance by the WSO.” See the 2010-2013 Al-Anon/Alateen Service Manual, page 108.The following information is provided to make members aware of a forthcoming cable TV news special for younger family members. It may increase understanding of alcoholism as a family illness, encourage younger family members, and their parents/caregivers to seek help in Alateen or Al-Anon.
The National Association of Children of Alcoholics (NACoA) has informed the WSO that Nick News, a cable TV channel for young people, broadcast a 30 minute special television show, “Under the Influence: Children of Alcoholics”. This TV show was aired to coincide with the National Association for Children of Alcoholics (NACoA) National Children of Alcoholics Week, February 13-19, 2011. The purpose of this TV show is to help children and teenagers who are living with an alcoholic parent or caregiver to learn about alcoholism as a illness and to inform young family members that they can seek help. You can still watch the show, online, on your computer here. Look down the page for the title of the show, click on it and watch.
Although Al-Anon/Alateen is not referenced in the TV film interview, NACoA, as the primary contact for the show, is cooperating with Al-Anon/Alateen by providing the WSO’s Public Outreach Web site address, www.al-anon.alateen.org and our toll-free 888-4AL-ANON (888-425-2666) meeting information number to inquiries received by telephone or e-mail.
Al-Anon members and groups are reminded that the World Service Conference approved policy for “Membership Eligibility,” states:
“Alateens are members of the Al-Anon fellowship. Where there is no Alateen meeting available, young people are encouraged to attend Al-Anon meetings.”
