What is the Purpose of Al-Anon?

For Help

Al-Anon is available to help families and friends of alcoholics recover from the effects of living with the problem drinking of a relative or friend. Our program of recover is adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous and is based upon the Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions, and Twelve Concepts of Service.

The only requirement for membership is that there be a problem of alcoholism in a relative or friend.
