Welcome to the SD Area 51 Al-Anon/Alateen website.
Suggested Al-Anon Preamble to the Twelve Steps
The Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strengh and hope in order to solve their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness and that changed atitudes can aid recovery. Al-Anon in 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.
Who are the members of Al-Anon and Alateen?
Al-Anon and Alateen members are people just like you and me-people who have been affected by someone else's drinking. They are parents, children, spouses, partners, brothers, sisters, other family members, friends, employers, employees and coworkers of alcoholics. No matter what our specific experience has been we share a common bond: we feel our lives have been affected by someone else's drinking.
