Minnesota South Area Al-Anon and Alateen
Al-Anon has but one purpose: to help families of alcoholics. This is done by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic. The keystone of Al-Anon’s structure is the membership. The basic unit is the Al-Anon or Alateen group, which consists of two or more individuals whose lives have been adversely affected by alcoholism coming together for mutual help.
