Al-Anon Faces Alcoholism 2011
Changing Lives strongly encourages finding a good 12-step group and attending regularly. This brand new Al-Anon publication can answer many of your basic questions.
â€¢ How drinking affects family members
With so much effort and attention focused on the drinker, family members often
ignoreâ€”or denyâ€”what effect the drinking has on them.
â€¢ Why the drinkerâ€™s family members need Alâ€‘Anon
Alâ€‘Anon members and professionals explain how family members can benefit from
the understanding and support of an Alâ€‘Anon group.
â€¢ Alcoholism is a family illness
Problem drinking is a complex issue that involves much more than just
the drinkerâ€™s behavior.
â€¢ The Alâ€‘Anon meeting is a safe, supportive environment
Alâ€‘Anon Family Group meetings create opportunities for healing and growth.
â€¢ The Alâ€‘Anon program offers â€˜toolsâ€™ that help people manage their lives better
Alâ€‘Anon members share choices they have made that enable them to respond more effectively to the challenges of problem drinking.
â€¢ Therapy and Alâ€‘Anon complement each other
Professionals recommend Alâ€‘Anon because it offers additional support.
â€¢ Alâ€‘Anon is a spiritual program, not religious
Everyone is welcome, regardless of religious affiliation or none.
â€¢ Alâ€‘Anon can still help, even if active alcoholism is no longer in your life
Sometimes when the drinker is gone, the effects of the drinking remainâ€”until they are understood.
