Alcoholism, alcohol abuse, problem drinking affects thousands of families in Australia and worldwide. 

Your inquiry is confidential and anonymous.  If you are concerned about someone else's drinking, we encourage you to browse our web site for information about our programs.

To help families and friends of alcoholics recover from the effects of living with the problem drinking of someone close.

Similarly, Alateen is our recovery program for young people.  Alateen groups are sponsored by Al-Anon members. Alateen provides support for teenagers affected by the problem drinking of a parent or other family member.

Our program of recovery is adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous and is based upon the Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions, and Twelve Concepts of Service.

The only requirement for membership is that there be a problem of alcoholism in a relative or friend.  Al-Anon/Alateen is not affiliated with any other organisation or outside entity.


Al-Anon meetings are held in 115 countries. 

There are over 24,000 Al-Anon and Alateen groups worldwide. 

There are meetings in every Australian state.

Our publications are based upon the shared experience of our membership and their application of Al-Anon's principles to their lives.  Our literature is available in 30 languages.

Whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not, Al-Anon and Alateen offer hope and recovery to all people affected by the alcoholism of a relative or friend.

You can contact your nearest Al-Anon office or the Australian General Service Office for meeting details and other information.

Remember: You are not alone and there is always hope.
