If you are bothered by someone's drinking, Al-Anon/Alateen Family Groups may be able to help. We are a fellowship of men, women, and children who share our experience, strength and hope in order to solve our common problems. Al-Anon's program of recovery is based on the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions as adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).

Is Al-Anon/Alateen for you?

The primary purpose of Al-Anon/Alateen is to help families and friends of alcoholics. Alateen is part of Al-Anon and is for young people affected by another's drinking. Members of Al-Anon/Alateen learn to live happily whether the alcoholic continues to drink or not. We learn that alcoholism is a disease and that we are not alone. By putting the focus on ourselves, we begin to reclaim our lives.
