At Al-Anon Family Group meetings,
the friends and family members of
problem drinkers share their
experiences and learn how to apply
the principles of the Al-Anon
program to their individual
They learn that they are not alone
in the problems they face, and that
they have choices that lead to
greater peace of mind, whether the
drinker continues to drink or not.
Sponsorship gives members an
opportunity to get personal
support from someone more
experienced in the program. These
relationships are voluntary.
Members ask another member to
be their Sponsor when they believe
that person will be suitable as a
mentor in applying the program.
