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.
