Hope & Help for Friends and Families of Alcoholics
Welcome to the Al-anon Family Groups website for District 14 of the Northern California World Service Area. This site is created and operated by District 14 Al-anon members. District 14's boundaries can best be defined by the locations of meetings listed in our Meetings List page, and generally covers the communities of eastern and central Contra Costa county.
The Three Legacies of Al-anon: Recovery, Unity & Service are the foundation by which our groups are guided.
Our purpose is to help friends and families of alcoholics recover from the effects of living with the problem drinking of a relative or friend. Our focus is on ourselves, not the alcoholic. The only requirement for membership is that there be a problem of alcoholism with a friend or relative. There are no dues or fees.
We believe alcoholism is a family illness, and that changed attitudes can aid recovery.
Al-Anon has but one purpose: to help friends and families of alcoholics. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families and friends of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic.
Whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not, Al-Anon offers hope and recovery to all people affected by the alcoholism of a loved one or friend.

Who may attend Al-Anon & Alateen Meetings?
Anyone who has been affected by someone else’s drinking in the past or present is welcome at any AL-ANON meeting. This belief is the basic “qualification” for participation in AL-ANON meetings. In a typical AL-ANON meeting, participants share and listen to the experiences, strengths and hopes of one another on a confidential and anonymous basis. Find a meeting…
