Alanon & AlateenAlcohol abuse and addiction is a serious disease. It affects everyone involved, not just the drinker themselves, and can ruin lives and destroy families. However, thanks to two excellent programs based on the Alcoholics Anonymous program, Al-Anon and Alateen, there is help for friends and families of alcoholics.

With Al-Anon and Alateen you can learn about and understand your loved ones disease and how you as a family member are affected and begin recovery. You will learn ways to cope as well as find a support system that can nurture you through this difficult time. You CAN change the future...one day at a time.


Al-Anon:


Is for family and friends of an alcoholic


Is separate from Alcoholics Anonymous


Is based on the twelve steps and twelve traditions from the AA programs


Is compatible with professional treatment


Alateen:


Is designed from the Al-Anon program, but focuses on younger friends and family up to the age of 19


Members conduct their own meetings with the guidance of an Al-Anon sponsor


It follows the same Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions, and principles as Al-Anon


Al-Anon and Alateen members receive help by:


Attending meetings on a regular basis

Having a sponsor


Applying the Twelve Steps of recovery to their lives
