Children of alcoholics (COAs) need the support of professional school counselors (PSCs). These students" family dysfunctionality places them at high risk for adverse academic, physiological, emotional, and social consequences. This article (a) introduces alcohol abuse as a family illness, (b) describes the possible effects of family alcohol abuse on children, (c) identifies potential indicators of COAs, and (d) offers suggestions that PSCs may implement to support students and their families. Currently, many COAs remain unidentified within schools; therefore, these students may not be receiving the counseling services they deserve and require. **********
