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. Al-Anon can help you conquer your addiction and support you to find the right bereavement support to deal with your grief.
