Families, Friends, and Observers welcome; In person, District 03
Al-Anon Family Groups – People who were once lonely, lost, and helpless because of someone’s drinking, today have courage, confidence, and hope. They have discovered friends who understand, as few others can. They have found the tools to help themselves – which can indirectly help their alcoholic relatives or loved ones. Contentment and even happiness are possible whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not. Come and see.
