Al-Anon is a mutual support program for people whose lives have been affected by someone else's drinking. By sharing common experiences and applying the Al-Anon principles, families and friends of alcoholics can bring positive changes to their individual situations, whether or not the problem drinker admits the existence of a drinking problem or seeks help. Alateen, a part of the Al-Anon Family Groups, is a fellowship of young people (mostly teenagers) whose lives have been affected by someone else's drinking.


Al-Anon and Alateen are not religious programs and there are no dues or fees to attend a meeting. For more information please visit
