Al-Anon is a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, srength, and hope in order to solve their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness and that changed attitudes can aid recovery. There are no dues for membership. 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.
