About this app

Al‑Anon Family Groups is a mutual support program for people whose lives have been affected by someone else’s drinking. By sharing common experiences and applying the Al-Anon principles, families and friends of alcoholics can bring positive changes to their individual situations, whether or not the alcoholic admits the existence of a drinking problem or seeks help.

The Al-Anon program is based on the Twelve Steps (adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous), which we try, little by little, one day at a time, to apply to our lives, along with our slogans and the Serenity Prayer. The loving interchange of help among members and daily reading of Al-Anon literature thus make us ready to receive the priceless gift of serenity.

The official mobile app of the Al-Anon Family Groups is designed to provide an easy way for anyone affected by someone else’s drinking to find hope and help, whether they can attend a face-to-face meeting or not.

Features:
- Al-Anon meetings powered by Zoom with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance enabled. In the app you will see this added security is identified by a green shield inside the meeting. The HIPAA compliance provides the following additional securities:
-- Disallows cloud recordings
-- Forces out of meeting chat encryption on
-- Forces encryption for 3rd party endpoints
-- Disables streaming to any service that only supports RTMP
-- Prevents copying or saving meeting chats
- Connect with Al-Anon friends and chat privately with them
- A built-in private journal, which you can use to track your recovery
- News feed where you can share with your Al-Anon friends what is on your mind; you can also view what’s on your friends’ minds.
- Subscribe to a daily dose of Al-Anon members’ experience, strength, and hope.
- Easily contribute to the World Service Office to assist in the mobile app in being self-supporting.

So frustrating. The app crashes over and over. I've tried everything. I realize this is free - but this is supposed to be a lifesaving support to the AlAnon program. In comparison the Meeting Guide app for AA works flawlessly every time. What is particularly frustrating is that for some reason it's the Zoom links that are the most broken - and all the "Join" button is supposed to do is get you into a Zoom room - another flawless / stable and reliable platform. Peace.

Great app, especially the part with soonest meetings. Could I please make a suggestion that when scrolling down on the feed and clicking on a post, when you back out you should just remain at the same spot - not go all the way back to the top? Also perhaps the ENTIRE post be shown, so you won't have to click on each individually. Possibly there could be a button for "Entire post" and "first two lines only" or something... thanks.

I just started using the app and so far it seems pretty good. When I start scrolling the news feed, the screen glitches up and down a couple of times before it let's me start scrolling. Also, I cannot update anything in my profile. I tried my picture and also some of the drop-down menus and it keeps telling me "network error".
