COA Awareness Week
Join the national – and international – awareness campaign to break the painful silence and offer hope to the vulnerable children and teenagers impacted by parents who are struggling with addiction.
1 in 7 individuals will experience a substance use disorder in the U.S. Many of them are parents. That means over 18 million children live in homes impacted by parental addiction. Help exists for these children. And for the adults who want to help them. Take part in this week to help raise awareness about the problem, to let others know that resources are available, and to give hope that life can get better. With help.
WHY COA AWARENESS WEEK
Learn the key benefits of this important campaign. COA Awareness Week is a gift that keeps on giving when we help to break the silence and help boys and girls at risk become children of promise.
Tools for COA Awareness Week Activities
COA Awareness Week celebrates the recovery of the many thousands of children and teenagers who have received the help they needed to recover from the pain and losses suffered in their childhood. It offers hope to those still suffering from the adverse impact of parental alcohol and drug addiction through educational programs, proclamations by mayors and governors, poster contests in schools, and radio, television and print media. Advocacy tools and suggested activities can be found below.
