Meetings

Attending an Al-Anon/Alateen meeting is usually the first step in our recovery. If you have never been to a meeting before, you may have a few questions. Here are a few facts about Al-Anon/Alateen Meetings:

  • Completely anonymous – first name only, nothing else
  • Confidential – what is said in a meeting, stays at the meeting
  • No registration required
  • You will be asked for your first name so someone can welcome you – if not, please let the chairperson know you are new – the group wants you to feel welcome
  • You can remain silent and listen, or you can share at the appropriate time (it will be explained at the meeting when this is)
  • After the meeting you can ask members questions you might have

There are approximately 160 meetings throughout Alberta, NWT, and the SE area of British Columbia, so hopefully there is one that works for you. We encourage you to check out our meeting listings using the map below.
