The Al-Anon program is based on the 12 suggested steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, which we try, little by little, one day at a time, to apply to our lives, along with our slogans and the serenity prayer. The loving interchange of help among members and daily reading of Al-Anon literature thus makes us ready to receive the priceless gift of serenity
Members of Al-Anon learn to live happily regardless of whether the alcoholic is still drinking. They learn to cope with feeling angry, guilty, overwhelmed and alone. They learn that alcoholism is a disease, and not a disgrace. Sharing experience, strength and hope shows other members they are not alone. We learn to put the focus on ourselves, and to reclaim our lives. Al-Anon is a powerful tool in the recovery process!
