Al-Anon Groups

  1. About this service

    Al-Anon and Alateen offer hope and recovery to people affected by the alcoholism of a relative or friend. You can contact your nearest Al-Anon office or the Australian General Service Office for group details and other information. 

    Al-Anon help's families and friends of alcoholics recover from the effects of living with someone whose drinking is a problem. 

    Al-Anon's program of recovery is adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous and is based on the Twelve Steps, the Twelve Traditions, and the Twelve Concepts of Service. The only requirement for membership is that there be a problem of alcoholism in a relative or friend.  Al-Anon/Alateen is not affiliated with any other organisation or outside entity.
