Al-Anon CAN help

Al-Anon is for families, relatives and friends whose lives have been affected by someone else's drinking. Many adults question whether they have been affected by alcoholism. If someone close to you has, or has had a drinking problem, the following questions may help you in determining whether alcoholism affected your childhood or present life, and if Al-Anon is for you.

Conference Approved Literature

Al‑Anon/Alateen literature is most fully understood when used in conjunction with other tools of the program. The books and pamphlets can strengthen your recovery, but they cannot substitute for the help and healing that takes place at Al‑Anon meetings in the context of a complete recovery program.

The 12 Steps

In Al-Anon, we strive for an ever-deeper understanding of these steps, and pray for the wisdom to apply them to our lives.

Alateen Resources

Break the cycle. There is help. Join one of our groups. You are not alone.

Outreach Resources

(need help on brief statement to say here..)


Study of these Steps is essential to progress in the Al-Anon program.


These guidelines are the means of promoting harmony and growth in Al-Anon groups and in the world-wide fellowship of Al-Anon as a whole.


Al-Anon has but one purpose: to help friends and families of alcoholics

What are Al-Anon Meetings Like?

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. Most AL-ANON meetings focus at first on a topic delivered by a lead-off speaker, followed by participants speaking about how that topic relates to their own lives or about other experiences in their lives. Participants are not required to speak, but when they do, they are encouraged to share their own experience, strength and hope, focusing on their own life without gossip or criticism of one another.

District Monthly Open Speaker Meeting

Our Speaker Meeting is held 6:30pm on the 4th Saturday of every month at Walnut Creek Kaiser Hospital, 1515 Newell, 3rd Floor, Oak Room 1. The hosting groups often arrange to have an Alateen and an AA speaker in addition to an Al-Anon speaker. All speak of their experience, strength and hope as it applies to their individual programs. View our District 14 Speaker Meeting Flyer for details. We award birthday chips, offer refreshments, literature, audio CDs of previous speakers, and have donation drawings. (Map)
