Education

Welcome to our online information service for education professionals

Teenagers and even younger children are seriously affected by alcohol dependency or from a drinking problem within the family. It is estimated that 920,000 children in Great Britain are living in a home where one or both parents misuse alcohol.

AA regularly gives talks in schools and in some cases is part of the curriculum.

Talks can be arranged on request by contacting the AA General Service Office in York (01904 644026).

What is the best way to get AA help for a problem drinker?

By far the best way to get help is to give them the AA telephone number (0800 9177 650) or to call the number while the patient or client is with you and hand them the phone.

The AA telephone helpline is manned by AA members with at least one year of sobriety who will offer to arrange for a member to contact them to take them to a local meeting. A similar service is also available by email by writing to help@aamail.org
