Al-Anon

The Al-Anon Family groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope, in order to solve their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness, and that changed attitudes can aid recovery.

Al-Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization, or institution; does not engage in any controversy, neither endorses or opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting through voluntary contributions.

Al-Anon has but one purpose: to help families of alcoholics. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic.

Is Al-Anon For Me?

Help is here for the asking. Are you troubled by someone's drinking? Did you grow up with
a problem drinker? If you identify with some of these statements, it is important to know that help and hope for friends and families of alcoholics is just a phone call away.

Confidentiality

We know the importance of protecting the identity of one another, providing a safe place in which to mutually exchange our experience, strength and hope. Our Traditions, promoting unity and harmony among members, affirms it. Our Concepts of Service, binding our fellowship through the World Service Conference, assures it; offering hope and recovery to all people everywhere affected by a drinking problem.

Who is Al-Anon ( Alanon) for?

  • Family members and friends who are concerned about someone's drinking
  • Adult children of alcoholics (ACOA) who grew up in a family with alcoholism
  • Children (teenagers) who live in a family dealing with alcoholism

You are invited to try an Al-Anon meeting here at St Paul; meetings are held in the church basement at 9:30AM on Saturdays (enter door off parking lot).
