NACoA celebrates 15 years of International COA Week

COA Week 2024

International Children of Alcoholics (COA) Awareness Week is celebrating its 15th year.

The campaign, running from 11 until 17 February, was founded by the National Association for Children of Addiction (NACoA): an organization that supports children dealing with addiction in their families, and empowers the adults who want to help them.

This year, supporters can sign up for the COA Awareness Week Speaker Series, beginning on February 12.

All webinars will be held at 11am ET and will feature experts in the field, discussing the issues facing children impacted by addiction.

You can register for the entire series here.

How does substance misuse impact children?

As an accredited provider of home drug and alcohol tests, we know all too well how substance misuse can impact families.

According to figures published by NACoA for COA Awareness Week, a child or young person with a parent who misuses substances is four times more likely to be physically or emotionally neglected.

They are also more likely to:

  • experience anxiety or depression
  • be absent from or drop out of school
  • have difficulty communicating
  • struggle with regulating their emotions and
  • be involved with the juvenile justice system
