Strength, Hope & Love!
The Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope.
How does Al-Anon Work?
In Al-Anon/Alateen, members do not give direction or advice to other members. Instead, they share their personal experiences and stories, and invite other members to “take what they like and leave the rest”—that is, to determine for themselves what lesson they could apply to their own lives.
Welcome to Al-Anon of Kern County
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.
Troubled By Someone Else's Drinking?
If you are concerned about someone else's drinking, then perhaps Al-Anon is for you. Browse this web site for information about the Al-Anon program. There are meetings held every day of the week. And there are people that understand as perhaps few others can. In Al-Anon there is hope.
Helping Families of Alcoholics
We do this by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic.
