An Open Letter To Spiritual Leaders

 
   

Dear Friend:

 

You are often among the first in the community to learn that a problem in the family may be the result of someone's drinking. Alcoholism is not simply an issue of excessive drinking, it is a disease which affects the drinker as well as his or her family, friends and co-workers, spiritually, mentally and physically.

Al-Anon Family Groups, which includes Alateen for the younger members, is an established community resource for people who have been affected by another's use of alcohol. Al-Anon consists of nonprofessional mutual support groups in which the identity of all members is protected.

Al-Anon is a spiritual program of recovery, which is compatible with all religious beliefs and practices.

The Al-Anon/Alateen program can aid the recovery process for the entire family through hope, comfort, and loving interchange among members having a common problem. When someone turns to you for help and an alcohol related problem is identified, we urge you to suggest that they attend Al-Anon and/or Alateen meetings. Al-Anon can help you help them. If you wish more information, please call 414-257-2415 or e-mail Al-Anon at alanon@alanon-wi.org for more information.
