Our ProgramAl-Anon’s program of recovery is based on Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions and Twelve Concepts of Service adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). The Twelve Steps are a foundation for personal recovery, the Twelve Traditions help the thirty thousand Al-Anon and Alateen groups sustain unity and harmony; and the Twelve Concepts are guides for showing how Twelfth Step work can be done to spread Al-Anon’s message worldwide.
The Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength and hope in order to solve their common problems.
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.
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. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions.
