Al-Anon helps friends and families of alcoholics recover from the effects of living with the problem drinking of a relative or friend. The focus is on you, not the alcoholic. The only requirement for membership is that there be a problem of alcoholism with a friend or relative. There are no dues or fees.
Alateen is the recovery program for young people affected by someone else's drinking.
Both Al-Anon and Alateen offer hope and help in Delta County. The meeting schedule follows:
