Al-Anon Family Groups Invite Families and Friends of Problem Drinkers to Find Local Support During the Holidays
The holiday season is a challenging blend of past memories and current difficulties for families who have been affected by a loved one’s drinking. Al-Anon Family Groups extend a welcome to relatives and friends of problem drinkers during this special time of year.

One reason for an increase in reports of alcohol-related family troubles, with reports of alcohol consumption remaining steady, may be greater understanding and awareness about alcoholism as a disease. Al-Anon provides strength and support for anyone who is affected by a loved one’s drinking.

Al-Anon Family Groups’ “First Steps to Al-Anon Recovery” podcasts offer families and friends of problem drinkers an opportunity to comment on topics of interest to people who have been affected by a loved one’s drinking. Visitors express pain and anger about their relationship with the drinker in their lives.
