English speaking family groups in The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg

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.

Al-Anon Slogans

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.
