Al-Anon is a vital resource for helping families finds ways to become healthy. By attending to their needs and their behaviors, the family is better able to own their responsibility and role in destructive family patterns. Al-Anon Family Groups assist family members to better handle the business of daily living for their own benefit, not just the alcoholic. This improves the individual family member’s sense of well-being but often also has a positive impact on the behavior of the alcoholic.
