Welcome to Al-Anon and Alateen of New Jersey. This site is intended for members of Al-Anon or Alateen, those who are troubled by someone’s drinking, health care professionals who treat families of alcoholics, or anyone interested in Al-Anon or Alateen.
You may not know if Al-Anon or Alateen is for you. You may feel that you can manage on your own. But you’re probably here because somewhere, deep inside, you know it’s time to get in contact with others who have walked in your shoes. The journey begins here – and now.
Find out how Al-Anon Faces Alcoholism
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.
Al-Anon’s Three Legacies
Al-Anon’s program of recovery is based on three legacies:
- Recovery through the Twelve Steps – The Steps are the foundation for personal recovery in Al-Anon
- Unity through the Twelve Traditions – The Traditions help Al-Anon groups sustain their unity and fellowship
- Service through the Twelve Concepts – The Concepts of Service provide guidance for service in the Al-Anon fellowship
