believe alcoholism is a family disease. Al-Anon is a worldwide fellowship of
those who feel their lives have been deeply affected by someone else's
drinking. The only requirement for membership is that there exists a problem
of alcoholism in a relative or friend. Members, who come from all walks of
life, meet to share their experience, strength, and hope in order to solve
their common problems. We find that changing our attitudes can aid recovery.
As always, there is never
a charge for attendance. The meetings are open to all persons who feel their
lives have been or are being deeply affected by the alcoholism of a family
member or friend. In this way, participants feel free to discuss what is in
their minds and hearts. What is said in meetings is treated as confidential.
We do not discuss members or their sharings outside the meetings. As the
saying goes, "Whom you see here, what you hear here, when you leave
here, let it stay here."
Our Web site contains
information about Rhode Island Area Al-Anon,
which includes meeting schedules, service meetings, fellowship events, and
our Area newsletter. It is our hope that, if your life has been affected by
another individual's drinking, you will use this information to help you to
make the decision to accept our open invitation to join us at a meeting near
