Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and to help other alcoholics achieve sobriety.
Al-Anon members are people, just like you, who are worried about someone with a drinking problem. Al‑Anon can help you learn how to cope with the challenges of someone else’s drinking. It may be that you could help matters by changing some of your own behaviors that make things worse. It may be possible for you to find a healthier way to respond to these challenges. There are no easy answers. But Al‑Anon meetings offer the opportunity to learn from the experiences of others who have faced similar problems.
Alateen is a place just for teens affected by someone else’s alcoholism. Teens come together to share experiences to find effective ways to cope with problems.
