What is Al-Anon?

Just as Alcoholics Anonymous offers a new way of life to the alcoholic, Al-Anon offers the adventure of a new way of life to the alcoholic’s family and friends. Meetings are devoted to understanding our own problems that stem from being close with someone who struggles with addiction.

Over time the Al-Anon program shows us how to cope with our difficulties and we find a more serene approach to life. It’s a free counseling and support group to those who have lived with someone’s alcoholism or addiction. If you’ve been in this situation Al-Anon is a great healing solution for you!
