 Al-anon's purpose is to help families and friends of alcoholics recover from the effects of living with the problem drinking of a relative or friend. Similarly, Alateen is our recovery program for young people. Alateen groups are sponsored by Al-Anon members.


Our program of recovery is adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous and is based upon the Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions, and Twelve Concepts of Service.

The only requirement for membership is that there be a problem of alcoholism in a relative or friend. Whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not, Al-Anon offers hope and recovery to all people affected by the alcoholism of a loved one or friend.

Your inquiry is confidential and anonymous. If you are concerned about someone else's drinking, we encourage you to browse our web site for information about our program and attend a meeting.

Thought For The Month

"In the Steps which precede the Tenth, we have been dealing with the past—cleaning house, so to speak.  We have searched the corners of memory for grievances to be adjusted by means of our new view of our role in life.   Now, with Step Ten, this prodcedure becomes a daily ritual, a housecleaning that takes place in a nightly review of the day's happenings.

         “”Continued to take personal inventory, and when we were wrong, promptly `;         admitted it.””

If this Step becomes a part of our daily life, there will be no backlog of guilt to worry about; we keep order as we go along."

Serenity Prayer
God grant me the
to accept the things I cannot change,
to change the things I can, and
to know the difference.
