Al-Anon Service Center of Tidewater

Welcome to the website for the Al-Anon Service Center of Tidewater, an Al- Anon Information Service and Literature Distribution center. If you are looking for the Al-Anon/Alateen World Service Office website, or another regional website, please visit our links page.

For over 60 years, Al- Anon (which includes Alateen for younger members) has
been offering hope and help to families and friends of alcoholics. It is estimated that each alcoholic affects the lives of at least four other people... alcoholism is truly a family disease. No matter what relationship you have with an alcoholic, whether they are still drinking or not, all who have been affected by someone else's drinking can find solutions that lead to serenity in the Al-Anon/Alateen fellowship. Click here to learn more about Al-Anon and how it can help you.
