Al-Anon’s Purpose

Al-Anon’s Purpose


At Al-Anon\Alateen meetings, members share their experience, strength and hope with others. We use the Twelve Steps (adapted from AA), meetings, and literature to recover spiritually, emotionally and physically from the effects of the disease of alcoholism. As we begin to understand the disease of alcoholism, we are better able to manage our problems and improve our lives.

AL-ANON IS NOT a religious organization, counseling agency or treatment center; nor is it allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization or institution. It is not conducted by professionals. We are all equal.
Al-Anon neither expresses opinions on outside issues nor endorses any outside enterprises.

AL-ANON/ALATEEN IS a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who believe their lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking. Alateen is for young people who have been affected for someone’s drinking. No dues or fees are required. Al-Anon is supported by members’ voluntary contributions.

Your identity and what you say at meetings will be carefully guarded.
The things you hear or say in Al-Anon & Alateen meetings are spoken in confidence and should be treated as confidential.
