Meeting Questions

What is the difference between an open and closed meeting?
Open Meeting - Open to anyone interested in the family disease of alcoholism.
Closed Meeting - Limited to members and prospective members. These are persons who feel their lives have been or are being deeply affected by alcoholism in a family member or friend. If you are considering attending your first meeting and have been affected by the disease of alcoholism, do not let the designation of open or closed meetings deter you from attendance. You will be welcome at either.

What can I expect at my first meeting? You can generally expect to be welcomed by the others in the group. You may receive a newcomer's packet that contains helpful information. Members also share their experience, strength and hope during meetings and offer understanding and encouragement to newcomers.

Will anyone say I was there? Al-Anon program's basic principles is that of anonymity. Meetings are confidential, and we do not disclose whom we see or what we hear at meetings to anyone.

Do I have to talk at the meetings? No, you are not required to share anything if you don't want to. It is your choice to speak or not during the meetings. Newcomers are welcomed to meetings, usually provided with literature and a local meeting list.

Do Al-Anon meetings cost anything? There are no dues or fees in Al-Anon and Alateen meetings. Al-Anon is self-supporting through it's own voluntary contributions. Meetings usually pass a basket around to pay for expenses such as rent (space used for meetings) and literature, but all contributions are strictly voluntary.

I am not religious and haven't been to church in years. Will I still be welcome in Al-Anon? Absolutely! Al-Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination or religion. People of any religious faith or of none are welcome. While many Al-Anon meetings are held in churches, the meetings themselves are not affiliated with the church in question. Though not a religious program, many people experience spiritual growth through participating in AL-ANON and ALATEEN, regardless of their personal beliefs.
