AL- Anon Jersey Family Groups
Al-Anon is a support group for the relatives and friends of alcoholics, it was founded in 1951. A twelve step plan is followed and successful completion of the course helps people to be able to manage to live with an alcoholic.
Al-Anon Family Groups provide support to anyone whose life is, or has been, affected by someone else’s drinking, regardless of whether that person is still drinking or not. For some of our members, the wounds still run deep, even if their loved one may no longer be a part of their lives or have died.
We believe alcoholism affects the whole family, not just the drinker. We are an international organisation with over 800 support groups in the UK and Republic of Ireland. Al-Anon is a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience in order to solve their common problems.
Whatever your relationship to the drinker, whatever your story, Al‑Anon can help.
Al-Anon Family Groups hold regular meetings where members share their own experience of living with alcoholism. Al-Anon does not offer advice or counselling, but members give each other understanding, strength and hope.
Tuesdays 7.30pm. Disabled access held St. Pauls Church Centre, New Street, St. Helier.
Members come from all walks of life. They are wives, husbands, partners, sisters, brothers, children, parents, friends or colleagues of alcoholics. No matter what our relationship has been with a problem drinker, we share a common bond: we feel our lives have been affected by another person's drinking.
We recommend attending about six meetings before you decide whether Al-Anon is for you. Meetings tend to last an hour and a half.
For 12-17 year olds there is Alateen. Alateen is for young people who are affected by someone else's drinking.
