- share experience, strength and hope with each other
- discuss their difficulties
- learn effective ways to cope with their problems
- encourage each another
- help one other understand the principles of the Alateen program

Alanon’s purpose is to help families and friends of alcoholics recover from the effects of living with someone whose drinking is a problem.
Our program of recovery is adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous and is based on the Twelve Steps, the Twelve Traditions, and the Twelve Concepts of Service.
The only requirement for membership is that there be a problem of alcoholism in a relative or friend. Al-Anon is not affiliated with any other organisation or outside entity.
