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.
