Under the Influence: Kids of Alcoholics, , the NICK NEWS with Linda Ellerbee program aired nationally during last year’s COA week. This powerful broadcast, featuring adolescent children of alcoholic parents sharing their pain, fears, sense of abandonment - and hope - as they struggled through life with an alcoholic parent, is available now on TeenNick. The Lucky Duck Productions & Linda Ellerbee received the Beamer Award from the Betty Ford Center Foundation for this documentary.
The Village Fog
COA Week celebrates the recovery of the many thousands of children (of all ages) who have received the help they needed to recover from the pain and losses suffered in their childhood, and it offers hope to those still suffering from the adverse impact of parental alcohol and drug addiction through educational programs, proclamations by mayors and governors, poster contests in schools, and radio, television and print media.
