Al-Anon is a long-standing self-help organization for family members
and friends of people who have alcohol and drug use problems. Al-Anon is based
on the steps and principles of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).
The message of Al-Anon for family members is that:
You are valuable and need to take care of
You are not responsible for the person who has an alcohol or drug use problem.
You shouldn't make threats that you don't intend to keep.
