In the United States today, one in every four children grows up in an alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional home. If left untreated the long term effects created by being raised in that type of environment can negatively impact a person’s self-esteem and socialization skills for a lifetime. The more we know, the more we grow! This year the convention theme is “Opening the Door to Emotional Sobriety”; a concept first introduced by Bill Wilson in 1958, the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. Understanding Emotional Sobriety and being able to  apply it practically in our daily lives is an important key to lasting recovery. The ACA Convention provides a safe environment where Adult Children can meet like-minded Fellow Travelers, gain greater insight into their recoveries, and help spread the ACA message to those who still suffer. There will be hourly ACA meetings, a series of helpful workshops, a keynote speaker’s address and other social activities. We look forward to seeing you at this exciting event!
