Al-Anon Meetings for Families Facing Addiction
Al-Anon is a support group for people who have been directly affected by family member’s alcohol use. Al-Anon was established as a group for those seeking a safe place to share their personal experiences. The organization states, “Newcomers to Al-Anon are often interested in learning from members whose personal situations most closely resemble theirs. After attending Al-Anon meetings, they begin to understand how much they have in common with everyone affected by someone else’s drinking, regardless of the specific details of their personal situation.”

Drug dependency and alcohol use disorder can affect those surrounding the issue and it can be difficult to navigate the road of support vs enabling problematic behavior. It’s okay to love someone with an addiction, but it’s not okay for their addiction to rule your life.
