Resources for Professionals

Counselors, therapists and others in a range of professions encourage the friends and families of problem drinkers to attend Al-Anon or Alateen meetings, where clients and patients can find understanding and support that complements and reinforces professional treatment.

To assist professionals, Al-Anon Family Groups offers a variety of resources.
