WE welcome you to the Savannah Al-Anon Family Groups and Alateen website. We hope you will find the site helpful and informative. It is our hope this site will lead you to an Al-Anon and/or Alateen meetings so that you can find in this fellowship the help and friendship we have been privileged to enjoy.
We who live, or have lived, with the problem of alcoholism understand as perhaps few others can. We, too, were lonely and frustrated, but in our respective fellowships we discover that NO situation is really hopeless, and that it is possible for us to find contentment and even happiness whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not.
We urge you to try our programs. It has helped many of us find the solutions that lead to serenity. So much depends on our own attitudes, and as we learn to place our problem in its' true perspective, we find it loses itsí power to dominate our thoughts and our lives.
The family situation is bound to improve as we apply the Al-Anon and Alateen ideas. Without such spiritual help, living with an alcoholic is too much for most of us. Our thinking becomes distorted by trying to force solutions and we become irritable and unreasonable without knowing it.
The Al-Anon and Alateen programs are based on the Twelve Suggested Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, which we try, little by little one day at a time, to apply to our lives along with our slogans and the Serenity Prayer. The loving interchange of help among members and the daily reading of our literature thus make us ready to receive the priceless gift of Serenity.
Like AA, Al-Anon and Alateen are an anonymous fellowship. Everything said in the group meeting and member to member, must be held in strict confidence. Only in this way can we feel free to say what is in our hearts and minds, for this is how we help one another in Al-Anon and Alateen.
Preamble to the Twelve Steps
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 institutions, does not engage in any controversy, neither endorsees nor opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting through itsí 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 is a non profit organization.
