Al-Anon Family Groups

We are here for anyone affected by someone else's drinking. Our Helpline is manned by a team of friendly and helpful volunteers who are also members of Al-Anon. They will listen and be happy to answer your questions.

Is Al-Anon for you?

If you are unsure whether Al-Anon is for you, it is best to start with the question: Is somebody’s drinking affecting you?

Al-Anon could be for you if:

  • You regularly feel hurt, embarrassed or distressed by the drinker’s behaviour.
  • You dread holidays and special occasions because you are worried that someone’s drinking will ruin them.
  • You find yourself covering up for the actions of a drinker.
  • You often prefer to stay away from home rather than spend time with the drinker.
  • You discourage friends and other family members from visiting because of the drinker’s behaviour.
  • You are ‘walking on eggshells’ because you fear you might set off a drinking bout or angry outburst.
  • You have considered calling the Police because of a drinker’s behaviour.
  • You feel everything would be OK if the alcoholic stopped drinking.

We’re here to help you.

Call us free of charge on 0800 0086 811 from 10 am - 10 pm, 365 days a year.  Please do not leave a message as, to ensure callers' confidentiality, we are unable to return calls.
