Al-Anon Family Groups

Al-Anon Family Groups provide support to anyone whose life is, or has been affected by someone else’s drinking, regardless of whether that person is still drinking or not.

For some of our members, the wounds still run deep, even if their loved one may no longer be a part of their lives or has died. Al-Anon Family Groups hold regular meetings where members share their own experience of living with alcoholism.

Al-Anon does not offer advice or counselling, but members give each other understanding, strength and hope.

Alcohol

Overview

Al-Anon Family Groups is an organisation for the relatives and friends of alcoholics, who share their experience, strength and hope with each other in order to solve their common problems. Al-Anon has one purpose: to help the families and friends of alcoholics. Anonymity is an important principle of the Al-Anon programme.

What we do

We believe alcoholism affects the whole family, not just the drinker. We are an international organisation with over 800 support groups in the UK and Republic of Ireland. Al-Anon is a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience in order to solve their common problems.

Whatever your relationship to the drinker, whatever your story, Al‑Anon can help.

Al-Anon Family Groups hold regular meetings where members share  their own experience of living with alcoholism. Al-Anon does not offer advice or counselling, but members give each other understanding, strength and hope.
