Live From the Conference

Our Area Delegate was at the 59th World Service Conference in Virginia Beach this past week. It’s over now, but he has posted his journey in a series of blog posts, so you can still relive his journey, day-by-day.

In his first story, Jeffrey shares a bit about his fears, his excitement, and his love of service, as he prepares to go to the Conference.

Check out all his posts — Preparing, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and finally, Thursday.

A Journey to the WSO

Recently, our Alternate Delegate, Lori, traveled with a couple of Al-Anon friends to visit the World Service Office (WSO) in Virginia Beach. While journeys can be metaphors for life and for recovery, they are also about change — changed attitudes, new perspectives.

Lori shares her experiences in this story and in the process, finds understanding, blessing, and gratitude at the intersection of our history and our future being played out every day at the WSO.

Welcome to the PA Area Al-Anon Web Site

There is a message of hope and help in the program of Al-Anon Family Groups. Women, men, and children who were once lonely, lost and helpless because of someone’s drinking, today have courage and confidence in Al-Anon and Alateen. They have discovered friends who understand, as few others can. They have found the tools to help themselves – which can indirectly help their alcoholic relatives or loved ones. Contentment and even happiness is possible whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not. Alateen, a vital part of the Al-Anon Family Groups, is for younger members seeking help while walking through life with an alcoholic parent, other close relative or friend. Teens meet to share their experience, strength, and hope, gaining a better understanding of the disease of alcoholism and themselves. The support found in Alateen helps with personal development and the troubled thinking that is often associated with growing up in an alcoholic home.

Let It Begin With Me… When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, let the hand of Al-Anon and Alateen always be there, and Let It Begin With Me.

Are You Ready? – “Newcomer Preparedness Checklist”

With the holiday season on the horizon, October through December is the busiest time of the year for many people. It is also a period of added stress, especially for families and friends of alcoholics. It is an opportunity to remind us to prepare ourselves and our groups to welcome newcomers who find their way to Al-Anon.
