Los Angeles, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/17/2017 --Restore Health and Wellness Center, a state-of-art drug and alcohol rehab center, is helping promote Children of Alcoholics (COA) week, an increasingly popular campaign led by NACOA (The National Association for Children of Alcoholics) to bring awareness to children everywhere who are negatively affected by parental alcohol problems.
COA Week is gaining traction worldwide
COA Week is less than a decade old, having been founded in the U.K. in 2009. Despite being recently founded, the Week is quickly growing in popularity as it's message of awareness and hope spreads internationally. With major events occurring in India, the U.K., and a variety of other locations, this year is set to be the most impactful yet for COA Week.
Indian hospital hosts the country's first-ever COA Week
This year, India is hosting its first-ever COA Week at Dr. A.V.Baliga Memorial Hospital in the city of Udupi in India's southwestern Karnataka state. The hospital has already begun to host a variety of events to commemorate the Week, including group meditation and a moment of silence, events with local artists, and a series of educational lectures for the hospital's medical staff, local colleges, and the general public.
NACOA invited to lecture at the British House of Commons for COA Week 2017
On February 15th, NACOA has been invited to host it's annual David Stafford Memorial Lecture at the British House of Commons. The lecture, which commemorates David Stafford, one of the original founders of NACOA, will involve multiple speakers sharing stories of parental alcoholism, it's negative effects on children, and ways that it may be able to be prevented in the future.The event is hosted by Liam Byrne, longtime Member of Parliament for Birmingham Hodge Hill and former Chief Secretary to the Treasury under British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
NACOA celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2016, but much work remains to be done
Since 1990, NACOA has provided support for the children of alcoholics throughout the U.K. and beyond. One of the organization's best-known services is a free helpline that allows alcoholism suffers and their families get advice, guidance, or simply someone to talk to during a challenging and often heartbreaking time in their lives.
However, NACOA helpline is only one of the organization's many programs and initiatives-- and in recent years, the charity has expanded to online publishing, blogs, videos, event sponsorship's and speeches in order to share it's message of hope. While these efforts have helped combat parental alcoholism, there's always more that can be achieved-- and it looks like NACOA is ramping up its efforts each year to tackle the problem head on.
