All Al-Anon Family Group meetings welcome anyone who believes his/her life has been affected by someone else’s drinking, either today or in the past. Al-Anon Family Groups have but one purpose: to help families of alcoholics. The only requirement for membership is that there be a problem of alcoholism in a relative or friend.
Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our traditions. Everything that is said in meetings and member to member must be held in confidence. Only in this way can we feel free to say what is in our mind and in our hearts, for this is how we help one another in Al-Anon.
Meeting structures include:
- “Families, Friends, and Observers welcome” – Al-Anon meetings welcome visitors seeking information about Al-Anon, as well as newcomers and members of Al-Anon.
- “Families and Friends only” – Al-Anon meetings are for members and prospective members only. Anyone who has been affected by someone else’s drinking is welcome.
Meeting types include Beginners, Parents, Men, Women, LGBTQIA+, and Adult Children.
Meeting formats include Step, Tradition, Literature, Topic, Speaker.
Alateen is a peer support group for teens who are struggling with the effects of someone else’s drinking. Alateen meetings are held separately from Al-Anon meetings.
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 6-8 meetings before deciding if Al-Anon is right for you.
