If someone else’s drinking affects you, Al-Anon can help. Al-Anon is a mutual support recovery program with the single purpose of helping families and friends of alcoholics, whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not.

Al-Anon is a worldwide fellowship with nearly 26,000 groups in more than 115 countries that has been in existence since 1951. These groups are also compatible with professional treatment, where statistics show 40 percent of its members receive counseling after first beginning to attend Al-Anon meetings.

Both Jackson and Pine Grove offer Al-Anon Family Groups as follows and all are welcome. In Jackson, the Al-Anon Family Groups meet at 21 Broadway near the Ledger Dispatch office on Sundays at 6:30 p.m.; Wednesdays at 11:30 a.m. and at 5:30 p.m.; and Thursdays at 11:30 a.m.

The Pine Grove Al-Anon Family Group meets Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. at the Pine Grove Community Center, below the Pine Grove Market. Al-Anon is free of charge and is self-supporting through members’ voluntary contributions. There are no dues or fees for membership. Al-Anon is a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics whose lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking. To learn more, visit Al-Anon.org or call 916-334-2970.
