Al‑Anon Membership Survey Is Open Now!

 

The Survey Is: 

  • Conducted every three years since 1985. 

  • Open from June 16, 2021 to July 27, 2021. 

  • Available to all Al‑Anon members, ages 18+ years—regardless of time in the program. 

  • Available in English, Spanish, and French. 

  • Short enough to be taken in 15 minutes. 

  • Mobile‑friendly. 

The Survey Is Not: 

  • Collecting personal information. 

  • Breaking members’ anonymity. 

Calling All Members – 1 day to 70 years!

 

Concept Four says, “Participation is the key to harmony.” This includes all of us, no matter how long we have been in the program or how new we are to it. 

It is no coincidence that, every three years, Survey results indicate the average age of Al‑Anon members has increased by three years. Yet, looking around the meeting rooms, whether in face‑to‑face or electronic meetings, we see a diverse group of members, including many in their 20s and 30s.  

To reflect the unique membership of every group, it is important to share with every member the value of Membership Survey results to professionals. Ideally, all members will be represented in the results. Survey findings help raise awareness of Al‑Anon Family Groups among professionals, researchers, students, the media, and anyone seeking information about Al‑Anon Family Groups. 

Please forward this email to other members so everyone gets the opportunity to participate. 

Why Is It Important?

 

Addiction and mental health providers are a primary source of referrals to Al‑Anon Family Groups; however, not all professionals are recommending Al‑Anon to their clients. 

The survey is our opportunity to provide data‑supported proof of Al‑Anon’s impact on members’ quality of life. It also lets professionals know that some Al‑Anon members continue to receive professional help in addition to their Al‑Anon recovery. 

Helping professionals to be more informed could mean more referrals, more newcomers in meetings, and a stronger fellowship for all of us.
