WHAT IS AL-ANON?

Al-Anon Family Groups hold weekly meetings for the relatives and friends of alcoholics, who share their experience, strength, and hope in order to solve problems associated with the family disease of alcoholism.

Al-Anon was founded over 50 years ago by families of alcoholics who had found recovery in Alcoholics Anonymous. Today, many Al-Anon/Alateen members are finding serenity despite a friend or family member having an active drinking problem or a struggle with sobriety.

In Al-Anon we learn that we are powerless to control an alcoholic's drinking. Until we stop trying for control, we will continue to live with the frustration that made us seek Al-Anon. Acceptance enables us to progress. Once we learn to let go, the loving concern of the other Al-Anon members will provide strong support.

Our God Box

The God Box Story


Using the God Box allows a person to release people, places, and situations that are beyond individual control. The effects of alcohol and alcoholism can be devastating, and release from the delusion of control can be extremely difficult. The God Box has also been termed a God Can, which infers "I can't, but God Can." As with many things in life, the exact workings of the God Box can't be explained or reasoned. However, the physical, emotional, and spiritual act of placing the request into the God Box and releasing it has brought many people personal relief.

How it Works

Click on the God Box above. Place your request in The God Box Form that appears. Click on the Let It Go Button at the bottom of The God Box. Your Request will be released into Cyberspace. You can also release it personally, and Let It Go.
