Welcome to Al-anon Family Groups for Roanoke

The Al-Anon 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 is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization, 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 has but one purpose: to help families 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.


Roanoke Area Meetings


In Al-Anon we have a Tradition of personal anonymity.  The assurance of anonymity is essential to our efforts to help families of alcoholics.  Each member has the right to decide the degree of anonymity that is right for them.  Nothing heard or seen at a meeting should be revealed.  What we say in our meetings will be held in confidence.
