Al-Anon Family Groups have but one purpose: to help families of alcoholics.
Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our Traditions. Your anonymity is protected at all times and everything you say or hear is confidential.
There are no dues or fees for membership — each group is self supporting through their own voluntary contributions.
No meeting is the same — try to attend as many different meetings as you can.
