Al-Anon's Purpose: Al-Anon is a fellowship of those who are affected by another's drinking who come together to share their experience, strength and hope in order to solve their common problems. We have but one purpose: to help families and friends of alcoholics. If you feel you have been affected by someone's drinking, you are welcome at Al-Anon meetings. Please check the meetings listed on the next pages to find the meetings closest to you. If you are a teenager affected by someone's drinking, you are welcome at Alateen meetings as well as Al-Anon meetings.
It is suggested that you try at least six meetings before you decide whether or not Al-Anon or Alateen can help you.
If you would like more information about meetings in Maine, please feel free to call the above numbers. We will make every effort to return your call in a timely manner. If you would like to view and download a meeting directory, click here.
Al-Anon's and Alateen's program of recovery is based on the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous. More information can be found at http://www.al-anon.alateen.org.
