When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, let the hand of Al-Anon and Alateen always be there, and Let it Begin With Me.
Al-Anon and Alateen are for people who have been affected by someone else's drinking. Alateen is for our younger members, aged 7-19, only. We do, however, have 2 certified adults (called Alateen sponsors) in the room in each Alateen meeting. Please click here for a full description of how our program works.
District 19 (Rappahannock District) encompasses Fredericksburg, VA and its surrounding counties. We have a meeting available at least once every day. If you would like to find a meeting, please use the Find A Meeting option on the menu above. We are here to help you. If you would like more information before going to a meeting please feel free to contact ANY of our District Officers and they will be glad to help.

Thursday Noon meeting adds Newcomer Breakout meeting
Serenity at Noon, the Thursday noon meeting at Trinity Episcopal, is adding a Newcomer Breakout Meeting to its schedule.

The breakout meeting for Serenity at Noon will be implemented on Thursday, January 19th.
