Welcome we are glad you are here!
Our personal situations may be different, but we share as equals because of what we have in common: our lives have been affected by another person's drinking. Al-Anon is a mutual support group.
We can find understanding and support when we share our common experience with each other. Some of us are here because a spouse or partner has struggled with alcoholism. For others, the problem drinker is a parent, child, or grandchild. Sometimes a brother, a sister, or some other friend or relative brings us to Al-Anon. Many of us have had more than one alcoholic family member or friend.
Alcoholism has similar effects on us all, even though our relationships to the alcoholic may be different. Many newcomers are most interested in hearing about situations and relationships that are similar to their own. Over time, however, we come to understand that we can benefit from hearing how the Al-Anon principles worked in many different circumstances.
Beginner Meetings: If you have a friend or family member who struggles with alcoholism, you can attend any meeting you would like to try. Most groups do offer a newcomer's meeting your first few visits. However, the following groups are specifically prepared to help guide you as a beginner to Al-Anon. Feel free to check them out!
