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!

Be Of Service
Have you thought about how you can be of service even during this ongoing pandemic?
Al-Anon’s Twelfth Step is about service. We strive to be of service to others through a variety of means, whether it is arriving early to set up chairs and make coffee, staying late to put away chairs and clean up, or helping out at an Al-Anon function.
But have you thought about serving Al-Anon through the Al-Anon Information Service? We have several positions that need to be filled, and most of them you can do from the comfort of your own home.
