We believe that
alcoholism is a family
Al-Anon is a worldwide fellowship of those who feel their lives
have been deeply affected by someone else's drinking. The only
requirement for membership is that there be a problem of alcoholism
in a relative or friend. Members, who come from all walks of life,
meet to share their experience, strength and hope in order to solve
their common problems.
We find that
changing our attitudes can aid
The Hawaiian Islands are among the most beautiful places on
earth. Despite the great natural beauty and aloha of the islands,

we cannot do anything about another person's drinking, we can work
to change our own attitudes and find happiness, whether the
alcoholic is still drinking or not.
This Web site contains information about Hawaii Area Al-Anon,
including meeting schedules, service meetings, fellowship events,
Area guidelines, and Island Serenity, our Area newsletter. If your
life has been affected by another individual's drinking, we invite
you to join us at a meeting. E komo mai.

Hawaii, Kauai and Maui. Oahu, the most populous island, comprises
three districts: Windward, Central and Leeward. Maui and Kaua`i each
form one district, and the island of Hawaii, the largest island, is
divided into two districts, West Hawaii and East Hawaii.
Al-Anon meetings in Hawaii are closed, unless otherwise
designated. Closed meetings are limited to persons who feel
their lives have been or are being deeply affected by the alcoholism
of a family member or friend. In this way, participants feel free to
discuss what is in their minds and hearts. What is said in meetings
is treated as confidential. We do not discuss members or their
sharings outside the meetings. As the saying goes, "Who you see
here, what you hear here, let it stay
