~2015 Membership Survey~

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 THER​​​E 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.

Featured in this video are anonymous Al-Anon members who share about the relief they found in Al-Anon meetings, with others having the same experiences related to someone else's alcoholism. They learn to focus on themselves and that they didn't cause their loved one's alcoholism, they can't control it, and they can't cure it.

“I was tortured with guilt at having become just like my mother, and I wasn’t drinking. I went to Al-Anon at the suggestion of a hospital counselor. He helped me to see that many of my resentments were a result of having lived with alcoholism. He said at Al-Anon I could talk to people who would understand my mixed feelings about my mother.” Al-Anon Sharings from Adult Children/p. 5
