AL-ANON FAMILY GROUPS (AFG)
The San Antonio Al-Anon Information Service (SAAIS) serves the Greater San Antonio and Texas Hill Country areas of Texas. The SAAIS is responsible for providing current Al-Anon/Alateen meeting schedules and events throughout Districts 12 and 13 of the Texas East Area. These districts include the following counties: Bexar, Comal, Guadalupe, Wilson, Atascosa, Frio, Medina, Kendall, Kerr, Real, Bandera, Uvalde, Kinney, Maverick, and the southern portion of Gillespie (Fredericksburg).
The message of the Al-Anon Family Groups, Al-Anon and Alateen, is one of hope. It is the story of men, women, and children who once felt helpless, lost, and lonely because of another’s alcoholism. Although Al-Anon grew from a need expressed by family members of Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon and Alateen offer help and hope to friends and families of alcoholics whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not. While many of our members no longer maintain daily contact with an alcoholic, they seek the mutual support Al-Anon and Alateen groups offer.
