Community Groups for Family and Whānau Support


Al-Anon Family Groups

When you don’t know where to turn because someone drinks too much, Al-Anon is here to help. Al-Anon is a 12-step program and has one purpose: to help families of alcoholics. They do this by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement. There are 80+ Al-Anon groups in Aotearoa NZ.
