The Al‑Anon/Alateen group is the basic unit of Al‑Anon Family Groups. It is where close personal interchanges take place among members. At group meetings Al‑Anon ideas are discussed and applied to specific personal problems.
The entire Al‑Anon/Alateen fellowship structure exists for the sole purpose of helping the groups help members.
Registration with the World Service Office ensures a connection with worldwide Al‑Anon. Upon registration, the group can count on the WSO for ongoing support including monthly and quarterly postal and electronic mailings.
