Is someone else's drinking bothering you? Al-Anon can help.
Al-Anon Family Groups are a 12 Step Recovery Program for family and friends of alcoholics. Some of us have a spouse or partner who struggles with alcoholism. For others of us, it's a parent, child, grandchild, sibling or friend. Loving someone who struggles with alcohol is difficult. It can make us feel helpless, angry, depressed and lonely. For many of us, it leads to obsessive and controlling behaviors. Al-Anon's peer-to-peer support offers us a chance to voice our struggles and share our experience, strength and hope. The family disease of alcoholism is complex, but Al-Anon can help us to change our attitudes and behaviors so we can find serenity, whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not.
