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.
• How drinking affects family members
With so much effort and attention focused on the drinker, family members often
ignore—or deny—what effect the drinking has on them.
• Why the drinker’s family members need Al‑Anon
Al‑Anon members and professionals explain how family members can benefit from
the understanding and support of an Al‑Anon group.
• Alcoholism is a family illness
Problem drinking is a complex issue that involves much more than just
the drinker’s behavior.
• The Al‑Anon meeting is a safe, supportive environment
Al‑Anon Family Group meetings create opportunities for healing and growth.
• The Al‑Anon program offers ‘tools’ that help people manage their lives better
Al‑Anon members share choices they have made that enable them to respond more effectively to the challenges of problem drinking.
• Therapy and Al‑Anon complement each other
Professionals recommend Al‑Anon because it offers additional support.
• Al‑Anon is a spiritual program, not religious
Everyone is welcome, regardless of religious affiliation or none.
• Al‑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 remain—until they are understood.
If you need help NOW
