Meetings are anonymous and confidential. There are no dues

might be right for you. Learn about
alcoholism as a family disease and its effect on us.
Help and Hope
The Al‑Anon Family Groups are a
fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share
their experience, strength, and hope, in order to solve
their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family
illness, and that changed attitudes can aid recovery.
Al‑Anon is not allied with any sect,
denomination, political entity, organization, or
institution; does not engage in any controversy, neither
endorses nor opposes any cause. There are no dues for
membership. Al‑Anon is self-supporting through its own
Al‑Anon has but one
purpose: to help families of alcoholics. We do this
by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving
comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving
understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic.
