Welcome to the Memphis Area Al-Anon Information Service.
If you are bothered by someone’s drinking, Al-Anon/Alateen family groups may be able to help. We are a fellowship of men, women and children who share our experience, strength and hope in order to solve our common problems. Al-Anon’s program of recovery is based on the
Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).
Is Al-Anon/Alateen for you?
The primary purpose of Al-Anon/Alateen is to help families and friends of alcoholics. Alateen is part of Al-Anon and is for young people ages 12 to 18 who have been affected by another’s drinking. Members of Al-Anon/Alateen learn to live happily whether the alcoholic continues to drink or not. We learn that alcoholism is a disease and that we are not alone. By putting the
focus on ourselves, we begin to reclaim our lives.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I
cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and
the wisdom to know the difference.
