Al-Anon’s Purpose

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 for

  • Family members and friends who are concerned about someone’s drinking.
  • Adult children of alcoholics who grew up in a family with alcoholism.
  • Children (teenagers) who live in a family dealing with alcoholism.
