We welcome you to the official Vermont Area Al-Anon and Alateen web site. The Al-Anon/Alateen 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 that alcoholism is a family illness and that changed attitudes can aid recovery. Al-Anon’s primary purpose is to help family and friends of alcoholics, whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not.

Meetings are free, anonymous, and confidential.

No advance notice is needed – feel free to come; you are welcome!
