English speaking family groups in The Netherlands and Belgium
Are you troubled by someone else’s drinking?
Attending Al-Anon Family Group meetings can help.
What is Al-Anon?
The Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength and hope in order to solve their common problems.
We believe alcoholism is a family illness and that changed attitudes can aid recovery. Al-Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization, or institution; does not engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions.
Al-Anon has but one purpose: to help families of alcoholics. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic.
Alateen is part of the Al-Anon Family Groups. It is for younger members who use the Al-Anon program to recover from the effects of someone else’s drinking.

How important is it?
Easy does it
Keep an open mind
Progress not perfection
Keep coming back
But for the grace of God
One day at a time
Listen and learn
Together we can make it
Keep it simple
First things first
Let it begin with me
Just for today
Let go and let God
Live and let live
The Serenity Prayer
God, grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change
Courage to change the things I can
And wisdom to know the difference
