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.


 To the Potential Newcomer

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.

You may also call the Al-Anon Information Service Line at 330-270-9441 for more information about Al-Anon.

 


 

Thought For The Month


"When I came to Al-Anon, I was three people. I was the person you thought I was, the person I knew I was, and the person I always wanted to be. Today, what you see is what you get. Those three people are now the same person. The road that got me to that point began with my first Fourth Step. "
