    Online Al-Anon meetings cannot replace the human companionship and warmth provided by regular attendance at face-to–face Al-Anon meetings.

    We hope that you find this supplement to be a source of support when it is impossible or impractical to attend regular meetings. Below is a link to the list of Al-Anon online meetings.
