Statement of Purpose -
Al-Anon’s Suggested Preamble to The Twelve Steps

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.

What is Al-Anon & how does it work?

Al-Anon is a fellowship of people who have been affected by the alcohol abuse of someone. We meet regularly in small groups to absorb the strength and hope of others who have lived with alcoholism. We learn from the experience of others who have lived in similar situations.

Alateen meetings are the same as Al-Anon meetings except that Alateen is restricted to people under age 20 who live, or have lived, with someone who abuses alcohol. Alateen meetings include one or two Al-Anon sponsors.

If you are living with a person with an alcohol problem, or if in the past you have lived with an alcohol abuser, please try some of our meetings. We have survived the same problems you are experiencing.

If you know someone who is living with an alcoholic, or whose life has been affected by an alcoholic, please urge her or him to try an Al-Anon meeting (or an Alateen meeting if this person is young).

The most difficult part of joining Al-Anon and Alateen is finding the courage to walk into the first meeting. The welcome we each received in our first meeting has given us the willingness to return. Hearing from others who have been where we are gives us hope. Discovering that each of us is accepted unconditionally, no matter what problems we have, is a relief. Being a part of a recovering process gives us strength.

Some groups meet once a week and others meet more often. There are a few groups that have meetings every day, and sometimes several meetings per day. Some groups have 50 or more attendees and some groups have three or four regular members. Some groups tend to have a broad mixture of people, with a variety of relationships to alcoholics, of various generations, etc., while some groups tend to be people in very similar circumstances.

SAAIS General Information.

The San Antonio Texas Al-Anon Alateen Information Service - SAAIS - is the focal point for Al-Anon family groups - AFG - and Alateen programs in the Greater San Antonio and Texas Hill Country areas of Texas providing Al-Anon group meeting schedule, Al-Anon event, contact, Al-Anon literature, and general information. Serving the Al-Anon family groups - AFG - and Alateen in Al-Anon District 12 and Al-Anon District 13 communities of San Antonio, Atascosa, Boerne, Bulverde, Canyon Lake, Comfort, Fredericksburg, Floresville, Ingram, Junction, Kerrville, Lakehills, New Braunfels, Seguin, Spring Branch and Universal City, Utopia, Uvalde, and the counties of Atascosa, Atascosa, Bexar, Comal, Frio, Gillespie, Guadalupe, Kendall, Kerr, Kimble, Kinney, Mason, Maverick, Medina, Real, Uvalde, and Wilson of the Al-Anon East Texas Area 53.

Al-Anon offers understanding and support for families and friends of problem drinkers, whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not. Alateen is part of Al-Anon, focusing on a program of recovery for teenagers, 12 through 19, who have been affected by someone else's drinking, usually that of a parent or sibling.

The parents, children, spouses, friends and colleagues of those afflicted by the disease of alcoholism can all be helped by Al-Anon and Alateen whether or not the drinker in their lives recognizes that a problem exists.

In Al-Anon, we believe that alcoholism is a family disease, and that help can be found for the entire family through the Al-Anon 12-step program.

If you are concerned about someone's drinking, or your life has been affected by someone's abuse of drinking alcoholic beverages, we encourage you to browse our site for more information about our recovery program. If you are presently an Al-Anon or Alateen member, or a professional working in the field of alcoholism, there may be items of interest to you on this Al-Anon website.

The SAAIS serves as the focal point for information regarding Al-Anon and Alateen meetings, events, and the availability of conference-approved literature. The SAAIS, San Antonio Texas Al-Anon Information Service, maintains an Al-Anon Information Hotline phone service to provide a ready source of information to those new to the program or our community. There is also a PO Box and email address to receive confidential requests that are channeled to the nearest Al-Anon groups.

The San Antonio Texas Al-Anon / Alateen Information Service, SAAIS, also sponsors a monthly Al-Anon Speaker's meeting. This provides a forum for members of Al-Anon and AA to express the recovery they have been privileged to enjoy by sharing their experience, strength and hope with others.

We understand as few others can. In keeping with the Twelfth Tradition of Al-Anon that states, "Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our Traditions, ever reminding us to place principles above personalities", your inquiry is always kept confidential and anonymous.
