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 AMIAS (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.
Although many meetings are in houses of worship, this implies no affiliation. It usually reflects the fact that the rent there is affordable.

In the wake of the pandemic, most groups have restarted in person or virtually; a few groups remain suspended. See the virtual meeting information page for more information, including a schedule and connection instructions for most virtual meetings.

There are currently no pandemic-related restrictions on in-person get togethers, including recovery meetings such as Al‑Anon and Alateen. None the less, many groups continue to meet virtually and some are strongly recommending masks be worn in face-to-face meetings.

Groups that are meeting in person are indicated by light yellow in the schedule. Groups that remain suspended are indicated by pink and virtual groups meeting only virtually are indicated by green. Some in-person groups are also meeting virtually, possibly in “hybrid” format, that is, with some members on site in person and others attending electronically. 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 in-person, suspended or virtual.
