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.
There are dozens of Al-Anon meetings throughout the Grand Rapids and Kent County, Michigan area, scheduled during the day, evenings, and on the weekends. In this way, Al-Anon is available to all, regardless of work and school schedules. You are always welcome to attend any of these meetings.
We hope you will take this important step, and we hope you will keep coming back.
