How does Al-Anon work? How does it empower people and impact lives? Join Rick Allen and Lauren Monroe in a personal interview with Jodi, a member of the Al-Anon program, for an in-depth conversation about the healing impact of Al-Anon on individuals, communities, and Veterans and their families. The Al-Anon and Alateen family groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength and hope in order to solve their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness, and that changed attitudes can aid recovery. Al-Anon and Alateen is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, or institution; does not engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions. Al-Anon and Alateen has but one purpose: to help families and friends of alcoholics. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic. *Al-Anon focuses on individuals improving themselves and their relationships. Al-anon teaches that we only have control over ourselves and that we have the power to change our lives. Al-Anon stops the "victim" cycle and empowers its members.
