In 1955, concerns for the problems of children in alcoholic families became a topic at the AA International Convention in St. Louis. Though there were several forums at the convention addressing these concerns, it was not until 1957 that the first Alateen group was formed in California by the teenage son of AA/Al-Anon parents. The movement caught on and several more groups were started.
By 1958, the Board of Directors of Al-Anon announced the formation of 31 groups with another 39 soon to be formed. The Board also announced the establishment of an Alateen Committee. By 1962, there were 203 Alateen groups registered world-wide. Alateen has continued to grow and has become a powerful force for good in the world of recovery.
