Default Al-Anon/Al-Ateen Link and Resources

Welcome to Al-Anon/Alateen

For over 50 years, Al-Anon (which includes Alateen for younger members) has been offering hope and help to families and friends of alcoholics. It is estimated that each alcoholic affects the lives of at least four other people... alcoholism is truly a family disease. No matter what relationship you have with an alcoholic, whether they are still drinking or not, all who have been affected by someone else’s drinking can find solutions that lead to serenity in the Al-Anon/Alateen fellowship.

You can also call 1-888-4AL-ANON (1-888-425-2666) Monday thru Friday, 8 am – 6 pm ET. for meeting information in Canada and the US.

If no Al-Anon/Alateen groups exist in your area, or if you are homebound, the Lone Member Service can help you. For information on the Lone Member Service, click here. There are also Al-Anon meetings available electronically. To request a list of electronic meetings, click here.
