Al-Anon: help for families and friends of alcoholics.

 

Maine Al-Anon and Alateen are resources for anyone impacted by a relative or friend’s alcohol dependency, either currently or in the past. Support is provided through literature and meetings, where everything shared remains confidential, as well as the identity of those attending.    
 

In meetings, we learn how to change our reactions to the attitudes and behaviors that commonly occur in alcoholic relationships. Literature is written by members and offers ideas on how to apply our Twelve Step program to the family disease of alcoholism. As non-professionals, we gather as equals, welcoming all who seek a healthier way to live. It is suggested that you try at least six meetings before you decide whether or not Al-Anon or Alateen can help you.

Coronavirus-Related Updates:

At this time, most in-person meetings are suspended. Many meetings are temporarily using an electronic format. 

Go to Al-Anon Electronic Meeting List.

While Al-Anon World Service has taken no position on how groups should respond to the outbreak, they have issued a statement saying,

"We suggest groups, Districts, and Areas access national and local health authorities to gain the knowledge necessary to talk to each other and reason things out. In accordance with Tradition Four, we encourage groups to be flexible in considering alternatives that limit personal contact, including temporarily holding the meeting electronically."
