Are you affected by someone else's drinking?
Many of our members took their first step towards a better life when they decided to attend an Al-Anon Family Groups meeting.
There are over 700 Al-Anon groups throughout the UK and Eire where you will be welcomed with acceptance and understanding. When family life with a problem drinker is chaotic, an Al-Anon meeting can provide a much-needed safe haven in which to share experience, strength and hope.
Contact our helpline
Our friendly helpline volunteers, who are all Al-Anon members, are available 365 days a year between 10am and 10pm on 0800 0086 811 to answer questions in complete confidence. You are more than welcome to simply turn up to an Al-Anon meeting. Find details of a meeting near you. Many members prefer to call our confidential helpline first.

Virtual (online and telephone) meetings
Further avenues of help are available through a variety of virtual meeting platforms. These follow the same principles as face-to-face meetings, including a commitment to anonymity and are run by the Al-Anon World Service Office.
We have a wealth of Al-Anon literature to help you, offering insight into all aspects of dealing with the effects of another's alcoholism. Visit our shop to browse our selection of books, booklets, leaflets and pamphlets. Literature is also available to buy at meetings.
