Who we are

Al-Anon is for anyone whose life is or has been affected by someone else's drinking.

Our members provide meeting in Barnsley and are committed to being there for you when you need help.  Whatever your relationship with the drinker, you will find other people who have similar stories to tell.  You will realise that you are not alone.  Listening to the shared experiences of others may help you find the confidence you need to deal with the effects of someone else's drinking. You will find it is possible to rediscover happiness, whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not.

Your anonymity is protected by using first names only and anything discussed within an Al-Anon meeting is treated as confidential, including your presence at the meeting.

We are not a therapy group and don't offer counselling or advice or try to explain your experiences but above all, Al-Anon is about helping you to find solace with and support from others who  have been affected by their relationship with a drinker.

If you are unable or don't feel confident to attend a meeting, you are welcome to join an online meeting.

Please phone the Helpline 0800 0086 811 for a Group contact number before attending a meeting as some Groups are still not meeting face to face.
