Probably the most popular method of participating in Online Al-Anon, meetings by email are available to anyone who has the capability to send and receive email messages.

Although the method varies from group to group, typically members post a message to one email address which is automatically forwarded to all other members on the list. Topics are introduced by a "chairperson" one, two or three times a week, and sometimes daily.

Listing on this page does not constitute approval of any group's manner of practicing the Al-Anon program. If you are not comfortable in one meeting, we urge you to try another. Here are some of the email meetings which are currently listed with Anon Family Group Headquarters, Inc., 1600 Corporate Landing Parkway, Virginia Beach, Va. 23454:
