Unless otherwise noted, attendance at Al‑Anon meetings is limited to members and prospective members – anyone who feels their life has been or is being deeply affected by someone else’s drinking. A meeting listed as “Open” or “Speaker Meeting” may be attended by anyone interested in Al‑Anon/Alateen.
All Alateen meetings are “closed”, limited to members and other young people who feel their lives have been or are being deeply affected by someone else’s drinking. The only adults who may attend a closed Alateen meeting are sponsors who have been certified as Al‑Anon members involved in Alateen service.

You never need to make advance arrangements to attend a meeting; just show up and you will be warmly welcomed.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many groups are suspended or have become “virtual” meetings. See the COVID-19 information page for more information, including a schedule and connection instructions for some virtual meetings.

Under the Governor’s Stay Safe order, face-to-face Al-Anon and Alateen meetings are permitted under restrictions, although recovery groups are encouraged to meet virtually or by telephone. Face-to-face meetings are limited to not more than 10 and, as of July 25, participants are required to wear masks or other face covering and maintain social distancing – six feet between members. See this FAQ on the Governor’s Stay Safe order and this FAQ on the face covering requirement. Some groups have restarted, indicated by light yellow in the schedule.

A few group are meeting out-of-doors, maintaining social distancing. If we know about such a meeting, it is indicated in the meeting schedule and in the list of suspended and restarted groups.

A white background for a group’s entry in the meeting schedule means only that we have no information about the status of the group — whether it is meeting, suspended or virtual.
