How Al-Anon Works


In Al-Anon, members do not give direction or advice to other members. instead, they share their personal experiences and stories.

How can I help my drinker?

There is no magic formula that enables you to help someone stop. - or cut back - on his or her drinking. Alcoholism is a complex problem.

How can I find a meeting?

If someone else's drinking troubles you, attending Al-Anon and Alateen Family Group meetings can help.
