Al-Anon Meetings

What can I expect at Al-Anon meetings?

Who can be a member or prospective member? The only requirement for membership is that there be a problem of alcoholism in a relative or friend-Tradition 3

What is a Closed Meeting? The meeting is limited to members and prospective members allowing for freedom to share and listen to the experience, strength and hope of one another on a confidential and anonymous basis.

What is an Open Meeting? Al-Anon members may choose to open their meeting up to people who are not families and friends of alcoholics but are interested in learning about Al-Anon Family Groups.

All Iowa Area Al-Anon Meetings are assumed “closed” unless noted. All Alateen meetings are closed. (See Alateen page for details.)
