Providing help & support to families dealing with alcoholism
Al-Anon LDC is the Literature Distribution Center for the Al-Anon organization. The LDC provides literature for people to learn about the Al-Anon programs and about the effects of drinking on people close to the drinkers. AL-ANON is a worldwide organization that offers a program of help and mutual support for families and friends of someone with a drinking problem whether or not the person with a drinking problem seeks help or even recognizes the existence of a drinking problem.
Comfort and understanding
Participants in AL-ANON give and receive comfort and understanding through a mutual exchange of experience, strength and hope, and learn how the principles of the AL-ANON program can be applied to their own lives. This process of sharing amongst people with similar problems and applying AL-ANON principles binds individuals and groups together in a bond that is protected by a policy of anonymity and confidentiality.
