More than 20 million people have a drinking problem in the United States and Canada. For every individual with a drinking problem, at least four other peoples lives are disrupted by their actions or non-actions. Of the estimated 80 million Americans and Canadians affected by someone elses drinking, most will not get help for themselves, and many will never realize they can benefit from insight about this topic.Al-Anon Family Groups was the first of many mutual support groups to adapt AAs Twelve Step Program. It is well-known, but still not widely understood. Al-Anon focuses only on providing confidential help to people in need. The confidentiality and anonymity of members is strictly protected. Al-Anon Family Groups (including Alateen) is a pioneer in the concept of family recovery from alcoholism. Friends and family who are able to recover from adverse affects are able to improve their lives, as well as the problem drinkers chances for recovery.
