Alcohol Awareness Week 16 – 22nd November 2021

Al-Anon offering Family support for those affected by alcoholism

Local people, from all backgrounds are being urged to think about their drinking as we approach Alcohol Awareness Week 16 – 22 November.

Al-Anon wishes to remind the community that help is available for anyone who needs it.

In Northern Ireland there are 48 Al-Anon groups, and more than 700 Al-Anon Family Groups throughout the UK and the Republic of Ireland.   They provide support to anyone whose life is, or has been affected by someone else drinking.

Anything discussed within an Al-Anon meeting is treated as confidential, including your presence at the meeting.

There are no fees for membership or attending meetings as Al-Anon is funded solely through members own voluntary donations and a collection will normally be held at each meeting.

Meetings usually last an hour and a half.

“You don’t need to speak at a meeting unless you are comfortable doing so” said a spokesperson.  “You can sit and listen.”

All meetings are listed on the website, or you can call our Confidential Helpline on 02890682368 10am – 1pm or 6pm – 10pm.
