2015 Membership Survey
98% OF AL-ANON MEMBERS SAY THEIR LIVES HAVE POSITIVELY IMPROVED SINCE ATTENDING MEETINGS.
Al-Anon is a welcoming fellowship of men, women, and children from every walk of life.
In Al-Anon we find the encouragement, help and support we've been seeking.
What a miraculous feeling to discover that many, many others do understand what we are going through.
As incredible as it may sound, in these meetings we encounter people who have known the same fear and suffering, the confusion and the despair that we have, yet by coming together and sharing their experience, strength and hope, they are able to move beyond the pain and begin to build better, happier lives.
THE ONLY REQUIREMENT FOR MEMBERSHIP IS THAT THERE BE A PROBLEM OF ALCOHOLISM IN A RELATIVE OR A FRIEND.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Almost all of us had questions before coming to our first meeting. We all took that initial step toward recovery and decided to attend a meeting. Years later, many of us still come back because the meetings help us heal and offer hope. It takes courage to take the risk and go to that first meeting. Finding the willingness to admit that we need help can be one of the greatest challenges we ever face, it can also be the most rewarding. When we finally realize that we are sick and tired of being sick and tired, we open a door to unlimited possibilities for change, for hope, and for a happier, healthier life.

The message of Al-Anon Family Groups is one of hope. It is the story of men, women and children who once felt helpless, lost and lonely because of another's alcoholism. Today these men, women and teenage children have courage and confidence. They have found understanding and learned what to do to help themselves - and this can indirectly help their alcoholic relatives, loved ones, and friends, whether sober or not.
Al-Anon members share their own personal recovery stories.
