Willowbrooke at Tanner offers
family support groups.
Al-Anon Family Groups offer fellowship and support to the loved ones of alcoholics. Family and friends can share their experience and find the strength to overcome problems.
Meetings are held the third Thursday of each month at Willowbrooke at Tanner, Education Classroom, 20 Herrell Road, Villa Rica, Georgia 30180. Meetings begin at 7 p.m.
Al-Anon has one purpose: to help friends and families of alcoholics. Al-Anon does this through the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to families and friends of alcoholics, and by giving understanding and encouragement to the alcoholic.
Whether the alcoholic is still drinking or not, Al-Anon offers hope and recovery to all people affected by the alcoholism of a friend or loved one.
Meetings are free and open to anyone supporting a loved one living with alcoholism.
Find help. Get support. Take control.
