Meetings

For Families And Friends Of Alcoholics

Our calendar pages offer a directory of Al-Anon information service, intergroups and meetings in the Vermont Al-Anon Area. These lists are intended to help members, potential members, the public, and the professional community find Al-Anon and Alateen meetings locally and to learn of the services they provide.

Where Meetings Are Held

Al-Anon groups hold meetings in churches, schools, hospitals, treatment centers, clubs, and other civic buildings, any place where the groups can afford the rent. Groups pay their own way, and they are not affiliated with the owner or operator of the building at which they meet.

Who Is Invited To Attend A Meeting

Everyone who believes that someone else’s drinking bothers them are encouraged to attend any Al-Anon meeting in this list. It is not necessary to believe that the person who drinks is an alcoholic, only that when he or she drinks, we react in a way that appears inappropriate. If someone else’s drinking bothers you, Al-Anon is there to help. Anyone who qualifies in this manner may attend any Al-Anon meeting.

Alateen is an Al-Anon program for children in the teen years. Alateen has one or more adult sponsors who assist the teens. Because the teens need a place that is confidential, adults who are not sponsors do not attend an Alateen meeting unless the group gives explicit permission for that person to attend. For these purposes, all Alateen meetings are labeled “closed”. Any teen who qualifies in this manner may attend any Al-Anon meeting. Some Alateen meetings list ages lower than the teen years, allowing younger children to attend their meeting also.

Many professionals in the medical, treatment, legal and judicial systems, students and others wish to learn about how Al-Anon may help their clients. Many Al-Anon meetings are open to the public and anyone who wishes to learn about Al-Anon or Alateen may attend any “open” Al-Anon meeting.

Some Al-Anon meetings are also “closed”. If you are a professional, student or otherwise have an interest in finding out about Al-Anon and/or Alateen, please identify yourself to the meeting prior to its start and ask if you may attend.

The Meeting Lists are organized by day.
