Group name
Adult Children of Alcoholics/Dysfunctional Families - Bundaberg
Group description
Adult Children of Alcoholics is a Twelve Step program. The term adult child is used to describe adults who grew up in alcoholic or dysfunctional homes and who exhibit identifiable traits that reveal past abuse or neglect. The group includes adults raised in homes without the presence of alcohol or drugs. These ACA members have the trademark presence of abuse, shame, and abandonment found in alcoholic homes.
Who can join
The only requirement for membership in ACA is a desire to recover from the effects of growing up in an alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional family.

Our 30 years of experience has shown that adult children who attend our meetings, work the Twelve Steps, and find a Higher Power experience astonishing improvement in body, mind, and spirit. Ours is one of the few Twelve Step fellowships that embraces the difficult task of trauma work, which can often lead to an exciting journey to the Inner Child or True Self. Along with sponsorship, we encourage informed counselling to help the adult child accomplish the greatest level of emotional healing from an abusive upbringing.
More Info
We discover that how we were parented affected our past and influences our present. We begin to recognise the unhealthy elements of our childhood. We begin to learn just who we are apart from our family of origin. We learn to re-parent ourselves with gentleness, humour, love and respect. By practising the 12 steps, focusing on the solution, and accepting a loving Higher Power of our own understanding, we find freedom from the past and a way to improve our lives today.
