Al-Anon is for the families and friends of people with an alcohol problem.

Al-Anon Family Groups provide support to anyone whose life is, or has been, affected by someone else’s drinking. We believe alcoholism affects the whole family, not just the drinker. We are an international organization. Al-Anon is a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience in order to solve their common problems.

Someone else's drinking can affect your life - be it a relative or friend, male or female.

Someone else's uncontrolled, and uncontrollable, drinking can:

bulletturn love to hate
bulletbring you to the depths of despair
bulletaffect you financially
bulletlead to violent outbursts
bulletmake you doubt your own sanity so that you wonder if you have driven your partner or family member to drink and that you are the problem.

Whatever your relationship to the drinker, whatever your story, Al-Anon can help.

Al-Anon Family Groups hold regular meetings where members sharing their own experience of living with alcoholism and of how they cope. Al-Anon does not offer advice or counseling, but members give each other understanding, strength and hope.
