Hope and Help for Families and Friends of Problem Drinkers

Alcoholism is a complex problem, with many related issues. Al-Anon can help you learn how to cope with the challenges of someone else’s drinking.  


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 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.



Still Not Sure if Al-Anon is for You?

Take the simple quiz, "Is Al-Anon For Me?"
