Group Details

There are two Al-Anon groups that meet here at The Woodlands United Methodist Church. Due to COVID-19, both groups are currently meeting in person and online on line over Zoom. We welcome newcomers and we continue to uphold our policy of anonymity.


Tuesdays and Fridays | noon in B 109

There is no magic formula that enables you to help someone stop—or cut back—on his or her drinking. Alcoholism is a complex problem, with many related issues. But Al‑Anon can help you learn how to cope with the challenges of someone else’s drinking. It may be that you could help matters by changing some of your own behaviors that make things worse. It may be possible for you to find a healthier way to respond to these challenges. Again, there are no easy answers. But Al‑Anon meetings offer the opportunity to learn from the experiences of others who have faced similar problems. While simple problems may have simple solutions, the solution to complex problems is more difficult to explain. Al‑Anon simplifies a complex problem by suggesting a “One Day at a Time” approach, which takes things one step at a time.

Note: Childcare is not available at this time.
