Welcome to ACA UK

Adult Children of Alcoholics is an anonymous program of women and men who grew up in alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional homes.

We discover how childhood affected us in the past and influences us in the present (See The Laundry List, and The Problem)

We meet with each other in a mutually respectful, safe environment and acknowledge our common experiences.

We take positive action by practising the Twelve Steps, focusing on The Solutionand we find freedom from the past and a way to improve our lives today.
