Al-Anon’s Purpose: Al-Anon is a fellowship of those who are affected by another’s drinking who come together to share their experience, strength and hope in order to solve their common problems. We have but one purpose: to help families and friends of alcoholics. If you feel you have been affected by someone’s drinking, you are welcome at Al-Anon meetings. Please check the meetings listed on the next pages to find the meetings closest to you. If you are a teenager affected by someone’s drinking, you are welcome at Alateen meetings as well as Al-Anon meetings.
