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.

- 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.

I've found this app to be very helpful to me on my journey, as it has been super easy and convenient to hop on my phone and jump on whatever meeting is going on at the time. My only annoyance is that a recent update has made it impossible for me to be able to hear the meetings through my phone's speaker (it only uses microphone, which I can barely hear, especially while driving) and I cannot connect it to my Blutooth headphones.

Frustrating this time around. Just re-installed for meetings on the go. Some bug causes the app to continue crashing. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it. Cleared the cache. Nothing works. I really needed a meeting this morning and am frustrated that the app won't work! Will update if response is received. ETA: quick response from developers and issue has been resolved!! Thank you!!!!
