Find a meeting
Almost any time and day of the week there is a meeting in your town or nearby. Al-Anon Meetings are free, anonymous and confidential. Members and potential members don't need an invitation. There is no one we need to call to make an appointment. All we need to do is show up and listen. A volunteer leads the meeting without being in charge of the meeting.
AFG of Mass., Inc. offers its meeting list in an online format and as a printed pamphlet.
Open and closed meetings
All Al-Anon Family Group meetings welcome anyone who believes their life has been affected by someone else's drinking, either today or in the past. An "open" Al-Anon meeting welcomes members and prospective members and allows attendance by people who are not families and friends of alcoholics but who are interested in learning about Al-Anon Family Groups.
Generally, Al-Anon group meetings are "closed," limited to members and prospective members, giving them the freedom to share and listen to the experience, strength, and hope of one another on a confidential and anonymous basis.
Look for the code "O" for open meetings, and "C" for closed meetings.
Al-Anon is an anonymous fellowship. This means that anyone attending a meeting is asked to keep confidential the identities of individuals seen and everything shared in the meeting.
