National Association for Children of Alcoholics (Nacoa)
The National Association for Children of Alcoholics (Nacoa) is a registered charity (No. 1009143), founded in 1990 to address the needs of children growing up in families where one or both parents suffer from alcoholism or a similar addictive problem. This includes children of all ages, many of whose problems only become apparent in adulthood.
Nacoa has four broad aims:
To offer information, advice and support to children of alcohol-dependent parents
To reach professionals who work with these children
To raise their profile in the public consciousness
To promote research into:
the particular problems faced by those who grow up with parental alcoholism
the prevention of alcoholism developing in this vulnerable group of children
