What is Al-Anon?
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 not allied with any sect, denomination, political
entity, organization, or institution; does not engage in any controversy;
neither endorses nor opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership.
Al-Anon is self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions. Al-Anon has
but one purpose: to help families of alcoholics. We do this by practicing the
Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by
giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic.
