Children of Addicted Parents and People (COAP) was founded by Emma Spiegler in 2006 . COAP was set up so young people affected by parental drug and alcohol abuse do not have to feel alone in what can be very tough times for many young people.
You Are Not Alone…
Over 2,900 messages have been posted in our message boards.
Our welcoming, safe, and supportive online community continues to grow; letting young people know they are not alone in their experiences. Our mentors understand and know what it's like to live with addiction.
'Its really nice to know there is someone in the same position, it makes me feel a lot less alone'. COAP member
