Delaware Al-Anon

Please Note: Until further notice, the Tuesday Night Middletown AFG meeting @ 8pm will meet in the Community Room of the Middletown Police Department, located at 130 Hampden Rd, Middletown, DE 19709 (you have to turn on Gloucester Blvd between the CVS and Wawa to get there. Meeting room is to the left as you come in the front door.)

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!
