At Al-Anon Family Group meetings, the friends and
family members of problem drinkers share their
experiences and learn how to apply the principles of
the Al-Anon program to their individual situations.
They learn that they are not alone in the problems they
face, and that they have choices that lead to greater
peace of mind, whether the drinker continues to drink
Sponsorship gives members an opportunity to get
personal support from someone more experienced in
the program. These relationships are voluntary.
Members ask another member to be their Sponsor
when they believe that person will be suitable as a
mentor in applying the program.
