What is Al-Anon?               

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 voluntary contributions. 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.

 



Who Are We?

Al-Anon is an organization comprised of persons whose lives have been negatively affected by someone else’s drinking. We have come together with the firm belief that by sharing our experience, strength and hope, we will all be better prepared to handle the present and go on to a brighter more serene future. The sole purpose of Al-Anon is to help the family and friends of the problem drinker. There are no dues or fees for membership. We are fully self supporting through our own voluntary contributions. We believe that alcoholism is a family illness. We understand that we did not cause the disease, we cannot control it and we cannot cure it; but, we friends and relatives of the alcoholic, by changing our own attitude, can choose recovery and a better life for ourselves while still giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic. Al-Anon is a recovery program for families and friends of alcoholics, whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not. Alateen, a part of Al-Anon, is for teens and preteens affected by someone else’s drinking, not for young alcoholics seeking sobriety for themselves.

Our Program

Al-Anon’s program of recovery is based on Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions and Twelve Concepts of Service adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). The Twelve Steps are a foundation for personal recovery, the Twelve Traditions help the thirty thousand Al-Anon and Alateen groups sustain unity and harmony; and the Twelve Concepts are guides for showing how Twelfth Step work can be done to spread Al-Anon’s message worldwide.

 

Anonymity Statement
There may be some who are not familiar with our Tradition of personal anonymity in any form of press, radio, films, TV, internet and other electronic media. If so, we respectfully ask that no Al-Anon, Alateen, or AA speaker or member be identified by full name or picture in published broadcast or Web-posted reports of our meetings. The assurance of anonymity is essential to our efforts to help other families of alcoholics.
