Primary Purpose: Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) vs. Al-Anon

Alcoholics Anonymous has but one primary purpose - to carry the message of recovery to the alcoholic who still suffers. Friends and family members of alcoholics may wish to contact a group specifically for friends and family members of alcoholics, such as Al-Anon. Chapter 8 of the book "Alcoholics Anonymous" (the Big Book) says this about Al-Anon:

Though it is entirely separate from Alcoholics Anonymous, it uses the general principles of the A.A. program as a guide for husbands, wives, relatives, friends, and others close to alcoholics. The foregoing pages [chapter 8 of the book] indicate the problems such people may face. Alateen, for teen-aged children of alcoholics, is a part of Al-Anon.

(footnote on page 121, Alcoholics Anonymous)

Primary Purpose: Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) vs Narcotics Anonymous (NA)

Alcoholics Anonymous has but one primary purpose - to carry the message of recovery to the alcoholic who still suffers. Although our program for sobriety has been of great benefit to many non-alcoholics, people having trouble with other types of addictions such as drugs may wish to contact a different group specifically for their specific issue. Narcotics Anonymous is one such group. Narcotics Anonymous is not affiliated with Alcoholics Anonymous, but uses the general principles of the A.A. program as a guide for sobriety.
