God grant me the serenity
To accept the things, I cannot change

Courage to change the things I can,

And wisdom to know the difference.

Announcement: We have an immediate need to fill several open Service Positions!

As trusted servants, we gather together to work on the business of service, so that we may support the the Al-Anon Family Groups in their direct outreach to those who have been affected by someone's drinking.

"Practicing the Twelfth Step offers us an opportunity to share our program in a new way. We benefit when we practice gratitude, and Al-Anon service is gratitude in action." -- When I Got Busy I Got Better p. 1:

We welcome you to District 1 of the North Florida Area Al-Anon Family Groups and hope that you will find in this fellowship the help and friendship we have been privileged to enjoy.
        The Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope in order to solve their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness and that changed attitudes can aid recovery.

         Al-Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization, or institution; does not engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting through its own voluntary contributions.

         Al-Anon has but one purpose: to help families of alcoholics. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic.
