Help for Children Living with Alcoholism
According to Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA, 08/2017), one in 10 children live in a home where at least one parent abuses alcohol.

This website serves Al-Anon members in the greater Wilmington area in North Carolina. New Hanover, Pender, and Northern Brunswick counties comprise this area.
We offer resources for newcomers to get acquainted with Al-Anon. Meetings are a great way for a newcomer to learn about the program. Please check the 'Find A Meeting' link in the menu to the left.
The Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope in order to solve their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness and that changed attitudes can aid recovery.
Al-Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization, or institution; does not engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions.
Al-Anon has but one purpose: to help families of alcoholics. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic.
