Children of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse

Is an affiliate of NACoA (National Association for Children of Alcoholics). COASA is at the Robt F Kennedy Children's Action Corps in Boston. It does advocacy work, provides direct service, training, education, support, intervention to and for the one out of every four children impacted by parental alcohol and other substance-use disorders. COASA helps children and family members learn what the rules are in a family with these disorders and helps children learn how to break these rules without getting hurt or hurting anyone else. The rules are "Don't Talk", "Don't Trust" and Don't Feel". We teach children that it's NOT THEIR FAULT and NOT THEIR RESPONSIBILITY. They didn't CAUSE it, can't CONTROL it and can't CURE it. They learn that they have a right to CELEBRATE themselves and learn how to have rich, full lives of their own. We offer them the help and support to make this possible.
