What Is Al-Anon and Alateen?
Al‑Anon is a mutual support program for people whose lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking. By sharing common experiences and applying the Al-Anon principles, families and friends of alcoholics can bring positive changes to their individual situations, whether or not the alcoholic admits the existence of a drinking problem or seeks help.
Alateen, a part of the Al-Anon Family Groups, is a fellowship of young people (mostly teenagers) whose lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking whether they are in your life drinking or not. By attending Alateen, teenagers meet other teenagers with similar situations. Alateen is not a religious program and there are no fees or dues to belong to it.
Triad Al-Anon Information Service is an Al-Anon Family Group comprised of representatives from many of the individual group meetings in our region. Our mission is to help provide information to newcomers to Al-Anon, members with questions about what Al-Anon is and how to find meetings in the region.
We operate a telephone answering service for newcomers, maintain an updated list of meetings in the region and operate this website to help facilitate the flow of information among our many groups.
