Newcomers

Welcome! You are important to us and we are glad you are here. Please check out our pamphlets and links below and click here to download our meeting list to find one closest to you. We recommend you try six different meetings. If you attend a meeting that doesn’t seem right for you, please try another one. All our groups meet weekly and each meeting has a different focus.

Who can attend an Al-Anon meeting? Anyone who has been affected by someone else’s drinking in the past or present is welcome at any Al-Anon meeting. This belief is the basic “qualification” for participation in Al-Anon meetings. In a typical Al-Anon meeting, participants share and listen to the experiences, strengths and hopes of one another on a confidential and anonymous basis.

Feel free to call our local Al-Anon answering service at (530) 376-0159 to obtain phone numbers so you may talk to someone or to have a printed meeting list sent to you.
