Why Meetings Are Important //

Coming to meetings to learn more about alcoholism, and how it affects the entire family, is an important first step toward recovery.  Many people choose to come as a last resort, when they have tried literally everything else they can think of to cope.  You will meet people who felt the same way, and whose lives are now much improved because of Al-Anon.  Members will share how their attending meetings has helped them better understand their alcoholic relative, and live their own full and happy lives, regardless of whether their family member is still drinking or not.

Did you know ... //
There are no dues or fees


Members make voluntary contributions because each group is self-supporting and declines outside contributions. Most groups pass a basket at each meeting to help cover its routine costs such as renting the meeting room, supporting Al-Anon services, and buying literature.  Contributions are optional.

No appointments are necessary


Anyone concerned about someone else’s drinking is 
welcome to walk in and attend any meeting.

Al-Anon members report improved well-being


In a past survey, 94 percent of Al-Anon members reported that their lives have been very positively affected by membership in Al-Anon.

Complete results from the Membership Survey are available on the “For Professionals” page of Al-Anon's web site at www.al-anon.alateen.org. Here's a link to a series of podcasts, "First Steps to Al-Anon Recovery". 

Al-Anon Family Groups (AFG) Preamble 


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 member-ship. 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.
