Welcome to Al-Anon
Because of COVID-19, our district is providing virtual meetings to support Al-Anon members. During the pandemic we do not have any in-person meetings. Please go to the menu above and click on the Virtual Meetings page. You can also search for virtual events on our Virtual Events/Resources Page.
We appreciate the courage it took to search for us online. As our Suggested Preamble to the Twelve Steps reads:
"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 change attitudes can aid recovery."
We have meetings every day in Berkshire County, from Williamstown and Adams in the north to Great Barrington, Lee and Egremont in the south. Pittsfield, Stockbridge, Richmond, and Lenox also have active meetings. If you're unfamiliar with Al-Anon or you have questions, you may wish to attend one of our special Newcomers' meetings. However, newcomers are welcome at all our meetings. Because our district doesn't offer Alateen at this time, all Al-Anon meetings are open to mature young people ages 13 - 18 whose lives have been affected by someone who drinks.
The remainder of Al-Anon's preamble reads,
"Al-Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization or institution; does not engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting through its 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."
We look forward to seeing you!
