Welcome to the Memphis Area Al-Anon Information Service.

If you are bothered by someone’s drinking, Al-Anon/Alateen family groups may be able to help. We are a fellowship of men, women and children who share our experience, strength and hope in order to solve our common problems. Al-Anon’s program of recovery is based on the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).

Is Al-Anon/Alateen for you?

The primary purpose of Al-Anon/Alateen is to help families and friends of alcoholics. Alateen is part of Al-Anon and is for young people ages 12 to 18 who have been affected by another’s drinking. Members of Al-Anon/Alateen learn to live happily whether the alcoholic continues to drink or not. We learn that alcoholism is a disease and that we are not alone. By putting the
focus on ourselves, we begin to reclaim our lives.


 


 

If you identify with some of these sentiments, we encourage you to give Al-Anon or Alateen a try!

 

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
