HIVE Directory: Support Groups & Activities

Al Anon

Given the recent outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) we wanted to reassure you that Al-Anon Family Groups is still available to provide support to anyone whose life is, or has been, affected by someone else’s drinking. Whilst we do have a contingency plan in place there may be times when the Helpline is covered by a limited number of volunteers so please bear with us while we try to answer your call. We suggest anyone wishing to attend a meeting calls the Helpline to request a group contact.

Al-Anon Family Groups provide support to anyone whose life is, or has been, affected by someone else’s drinking, regardless of whether that person is still drinking or not. For some of our members, the wounds still run deep, even if their loved one may no longer be a part of their lives or has died.
