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.
