Alcoholism is a family disease. Living with the effects of someone else’s drinking is too devastating for most people to bear without help. In Al-Anon we learn individuals are not responsible for another person’s disease or recovery from it. If you are bothered by someone’s drinking, Al-Anon is for you! If you have further questions, you can call Peggy at 410-282-8891 or the parish office.
