Professionals

Counsellors, therapists and others in a range of professions encourage the friends and families of problem drinkers to attend Al-Anon meetings, where clients and patients can find understanding and support that complements and reinforces professional treatment.

To assist professionals, Al-Anon Family Groups offers a variety of resources.

Open meetings accept professionals that are interested in observing. There’s nothing like firsthand knowledge.

 

Here are links to printable PDF documents aimed for the specific occupation. We encourage you to use these for any people you feel may benefit from them.
