Al-Anon family groups
Nov 19 @ 8:00 pm

Al-Anon Family Groups provide support to anyone whose life is, or has been, affected by someone else’s drinking, regardless of whether that person is still drinking or not.

Newcomers may just turn up at a meeting and they will be warmly welcomed.

There will be sharing from participants, but no-one has to share and there is no discussion.

The 12 step programme, followed by Alcoholics Anonymous, is also followed by Al-Anon Family Groups.

Relatives and close friends of people with drug addictions are also welcome to attend (often, there is an alcohol problem with this group too).

Please note that meetings are not held on Bank Holidays.
