What does Al-Anon and Alateen do?
Just as AA offers a new way of life to the alcoholic, Al-Anon and Alateen offer the adventure of a new way of life to the alcoholic’s family and friends. Meetings are devoted to understanding our own problems. Over time the Al-Anon and Alateen program shows us how to cope with our difficulties and we find a more serene approach to life.
