Al-Anon/Alateen Cooperates With Professionals By Providing:
- Speakers and literature for conferences, workshops, and meetings.
- The booklet Al-Anon Faces Alcoholism
- Meetings for "Families, Friends, and Observers" (formerly referred to as “open meetings”)
- Meetings at schools, institutions, and other facilities
- Local meeting schedules
Al-Anon/Alateen Meetings Include:
- Meetings for "Families, Friends, and Observers" (formerly referred to as “open meetings”), which may be attended by anyone interested in learning about the Al-Anon or Alateen program.
- Meetings for "Families and Friends only" (formerly referred to as “closed meetings”), which are for anyone whose life is or has been affected by a problem drinker.
- Limited access groups which meet in locations where the general membership may not be able to attend (i.e.,industrial, military or school settings).
Al-Anon/Alateen Groups Are Started By:
- Al-Anon and Alateen members.
- While the actual founding of the group and its functions is the responsibility of those qualified for membership, occasionally a minister, doctor, social worker, or AA member initiates the formation of an Al-Anon/Alateen group. However, after the group has been started, professional or AA participation should be limited to open meetings.
Al-Anon/Alateen Is Self-Supporting:
- Through the voluntary contributions of members; there are no dues or fees for membership.
- And does not accept any outside funds, grants, or donations.
