What is Al-Anon? Al‑Anon 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.

Al-Anon meetings at FUMC:

  • Mondays | 12:00-1:00 PM | Adult Building, Room 113

What is PAL?: Parents of Addicted Loved Ones (PAL) focuses on the challenges unique to the parents of adult users. Parents of adolescents still have some control over their child’s life, but parents of adults lose that ability to negotiate. Parents struggle with the distinction between helping and enabling, and learn to set healthy boundaries during meetings. PAL meetings are open to anyone of any faith or background (over the age of 18) as our primary goal is to provide hope through education and support for parents dealing with addicted loved ones. PAL’s founding principle is parents helping parents. While the focus is on parents with an addicted child, all adult family member and friends are welcome to attend.
