* focus is on people whose lives have been affected by another's drinking  
* ensures a warm and loving welcome at any Al-Anon meeting  
* it is often suggested to attend five or six meetings before deciding if this program is right 
* based on the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions adapted from AA  
* a spiritual program, based on no particular form of religion  
* not allied with any sect or denomination, everyone is welcome, no matter what affiliation or none
