The Phoenix House Center on Addiction and the Family (COAF) – formerly the Children of Alcoholics Foundation – was established in 1982 to help children and adults from addicted families. COAF’s mission is to help children of all ages from alcoholic and substance abusing families reach their full potential by breaking the cycle of parental substance abuse and reducing the pain and problems that result from parental addiction. To realize this goal, COAF, an affiliate of Phoenix House since 1997, develops curriculum and other educational materials, writes reports, provides information about parental substance abuse for the general public, trains professionals, and promotes research.
