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 and Alateen are 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 or fees. Al-Anon/Alateen is self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions.

Alateen in El Sobrante!
2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month, 7:00 p.m.
Ages 7-13

New to Al-Anon?
Many of us were frightened when we walked into our first meeting.

Once inside, we found support and fellowship, respect for confidentiality, and permission to “take what you like and leave the rest.”

We welcome you to join us and learn more.
