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 situations.
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.
In Al-Anon, members do not give direction or advice to other members. Instead, they share their personal experiences and stories, and invite other members to “take what they like and leave the rest”-that is, to determine for themselves what lesson they could apply to their own lives.
The best place to learn how Al-Anon works is at an Al-Anon meeting in your local community. Personal contact is an important element in the healing process. These Web page selections may give you some encouragement to visit your first meeting.

"Suffolk Information Services offers a list of Al-Anon/Alateen groups at their request. There is an informal agreement that the group will abide by the Al-Anon Traditions and keep its doors open to any Al-Anon member. Listing in the directory does not constitute approval of any group's manner of practicing the Al-Anon program. If the group you attend is not right for you, please try another; there is help and hope available in Al-Anon."
