Can I attend an Al-Anon meeting if my family member is addicted to something other than alcohol?
Yes you are welcome here. The primary focus of Al-Anon is to solve the common problems experienced by families and friends of alcoholics. However, you are welcome to attend Al-Anon meetings to see if you can relate to what people talk about, and then decide if the Al-Anon program might be helpful to you.
How long does a meeting last?
Meetings typically last one hour.
Will I be expected to speak at a meeting?
No. No one is expected to talk at a meeting. Newcomers share when they are ready. In fact, listening is highly encouraged.
Can I bring a friend with me to a meeting?
How do I find a meeting?
