What is Al-anon and Al-ateen?

For over 50 years, Al-Anon, which includes Alateen for younger members, has been offering hope and help to families and friends of alcoholics.  It is estimated that each alcoholic affects the lives of at least four other people.  Alcoholism is truly a family disease.  No matter what relationship you have with an alcoholic, whether they are still drinking or not, all who have been affected by someone else’s drinking can find solutions that lead to serenity in the Al-Anon/Alateen fellowship.

 

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.  Al-Anon has but one purpose, to help families of alcoholics.  This is done by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic.
