Al-Anon Family Groups started in 1951 to support families of alcoholics. Group meetings work towards independence for everyone involved. The basis for these groups was to best manage the after effects of the disease. Even when the alcoholic gets sober, relatives and family members sometimes get worse. Meetings were formed to support those still having resentment and worry. They help family members affected achieve hope and serenity.

A member myself, I work towards trying to improve myself while taking away the focus of the alcoholic. I redirect that attention to my self and self care.

There are basic acronyms and slogans you can use for recovery. There are 12 steps to work the program, and getting a sponsor is recommend to help you work them. The program is free and you can join virtually or in person.
