NACOA Deutschland

NACOA Deutschland – Interessenvertretung fuer Kinderaussuchtfamilien e.V. was founded in 2004 as a non-profit organization under German law. It aims to “improve the situation of children from addicted families, to inform the public about the problems of children from addicted families by means of public relations work and the provision of assistance for these children.” NACOA Deutschland advocates for children and families at the German Federal Parliament (Bundestag). It has translated, printed, and distributed NACoA’s “Kit for Early Childhood Professionals” and the guide for healthcare professionals. It has also translated many other NACoA documents and posted them on its website or printed them as leaflets. NACOA Deutschland has arranged several national conferences on Children of Addicts and hosts the annual nationwide COA Week. Currently an online helpdesk for adolescents from addicted families and a telephone helpline for teachers and child care workers are being established. They are also the recipient of NACoA’s 2014 Meritorious Service Award for outstanding event planning and awareness for Children of Alcoholics Awareness Week.
