New To Al-Anon?
Welcome, We’re Glad You’re Here
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.
Al-Anon and Alateen Family Groups hold weekly meetings for the relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope, in order to solve problems associated with the family disease of alcoholism. We believe the disease affects all members of the family, and that changed attitudes can aid recovery.
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. Members of Al-Anon/Alateen learn to live happily whether the alcoholic continues to drink or not.
Please check out our About Al-Anon tab to learn more about Al-Anon and how we can help you.

How will Al-Anon help me?
Our personal situations may be different, but we share as equals because of what we have in common: our lives have been affected by another person’s drinking.
Conference Approved Literature
Conference Approved Literature (CAL) is written by and for our members and goes through a thorough review process by numerous Al‑Anon members to assure that the Al‑Anon program message is clear and consistent. Samples from CAL are posted on al‑anon.org. You can purchase Conference Approved Literature through our online store.
Anonyminity and Confidentiality
Anonymity helps keep the emphasis on principles that can help solve personal problems, rather than on the personal situations that might be part of the problem. No one’s social status, professional standing, or level of education matters at an Al–Anon meeting. Confidentiality ensures that members can speak from the heart at an Al–Anon meeting, because everything said at the meeting stays at the meeting.
Please be aware that confidentiality and anonymity vary from platform to platform. It is the responsibility of the Al–Anon member to understand how to maintain personal anonymity when participating in an online Al–Anon meeting.
Spiritual, Not Religious
Al–Anon is a spiritual program. Al‑Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization, or institution; does not engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any cause. We represent a way of life appealing to all people of goodwill, of any religious faith or of none.
