Children of Alcoholics Awareness Week

Children of Alcoholics Awareness Week

The National Association for Children of Alcoholics states that one in four children has a parent who is addicted to drugs or alcohol. This means that over 18 million children are suffering silently from the effects of parental alcoholism.

These children are often unable to see the bright side of life and feel helpless. Children of Alcoholics Awareness Week is designed to raise awareness about this social disease.

Children of Alcoholics Awareness Week is a week-long campaign sponsored and organized by The National Association for Children of Alcoholics. It raises awareness about the negative effects of alcoholic parents on children and hopes to give them a chance for a better future.

NACOA’s Children of Alcoholics Awareness Week seeks to end the silence caused by parental alcoholic dependence on children. The epidemic of alcoholism is a global health problem. Even though child welfare programs are constantly supporting these children, many more children face the issue and suffer the consequences.

NACOA is a non-profit, 501(c),(3) organization that offers a range of products and programs to support people in need of alcohol prevention. For children, this week is all about sharing their stories and seeking healing. NACOA hopes that this holiday can make a difference in a child’s life by sharing the most recent research and working together with other organizations around the world.

Members of NACOA helped spread awareness throughout the week through school programs, consultations and leadership events in policy. They also allowed people to donate to their organization to continue their research and offer their programs.

Use this opportunity to make use of some resources NACOA offers, such as their social-media toolkit, and to distribute flyers in your area. Go to your church or local government to support the cause. Also, convince your officials about the possible costs and programs in public schools.

Use NACOA’s statistics and research to speak out about these issues to encourage others to help children in need. Share this holiday on social media using the hashtag #ChildrenofAlcoholicsWeek to let your friends and family know you support his cause and want to protect children out there from the harms of alcoholism.
