Al-Anon and Alateen members are people just like you and me–people who have been affected by someone else's drinking. They are parents, children, spouses, partners, brothers, sisters, other family members, friends, employers, employees, and coworkers of alcoholics. No matter what our specific experience has been we share a common bond: we feel our lives have been affected by someone else's drinking.
Al-Anon may be listed in the white pages of your local telephone directory. Cities with local information services are listed on our Web site. Many of those listed post meeting information on their websites.
For over 50 years Al-Anon has been carrying a message of hope: no matter what relationship a person has with an
alcoholic (whether he or she is still drinking or not), if you have been affected
by someone else's drinking, you can find solutions that lead to serenity in
Our meetings are anonymous and confidential. There are no dues or fees for membership.
Al-Anon's personal magazine, The Forum, contains many personal stories of inspiration, three of which are made available each month on the internet by authorization of the Al-Anon Family Groups Headquarters Group, Inc.
