There are over 700 Al-Anon groups throughout the UK and Eire where you will be welcomed with acceptance and understanding. When family life with a problem drinker is chaotic, an Al-Anon meeting can provide a much-needed safe haven in which to share experience, strength and hope. Whether your relationship with some one who drinks is in the past or present, Al-Anon is for you.
