Statement of Purpose



Al-Anon’s Suggested Preamble to the Twelve Steps



The Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength and hope in order to solve their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness and that changed attitudes can aid recovery.

Al-Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization or institution; does not engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions.


Al-Anon has but one purpose: to help families of alcoholics. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic.

Hope is here for the asking. Please take a moment to ask yourself these questions:


Are You Troubled by Someone’s Drinking?




Did You Grow Up With a Problem Drinker?



If you identify with some of these statements, it is important to know that help and hope for friends and families of alcoholics is just a phone call away.
