Alcoholics Anonymous® (AA) is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience,
strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover
from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.
There are no dues or fees for AA membership.
For over 50 years, Al-Anon (which includes Alateen for younger members) has been offering
hope and help to families and friends of alcoholics. It is estimated that each alcoholic
affects the lives of at least four other people... alcoholism is truly a family disease.
No matter what relationship you have with an alcoholic, whether they are still drinking or
not, all who have been affected by someone else’s drinking can find solutions that lead to
serenity in the Al-Anon/Alateen fellowship.
For meeting information in Canada, the U.S., and Puerto Rico: 1-888-4AL-ANON (1-888-425-2666)
Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 6:00pm ET.
