Newcomers

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.

Alateen is for Al-Anon’s younger members who range from 9 to 19 years of age and whose lives have been affected by someone’s drinking.

Each Al-Anon Family Group has but one purpose: to help families of alcoholics. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) ourselves, be encouraging and understanding our alcoholic relatives, and by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics.

Many of us come to Al-Anon or Alateen in despair, feeling hopeless, unable to believe that things can ever change. We want our lives to be different, but nothing we do seems to work. We come to Al-Anon because we want and need help.

In Al-Anon and Alateen, members share their own experience, strength, and hope. You will meet others who share your feelings and frustrations. We come together to learn a better way of life and to find happiness whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not.

Al-Anon meetings are found morning, noon, and night across Central Ohio. Visit Meeting Information or Alateen Meetings for more information or follow one of the links below. You may also call the Al-Anon Information Service at (614) 547-1550 for additional information.
