Meetings focus on Al-Anon-related topics, and participants are required to maintain their personal anonymity. Pictures of Al-Anon members and other pieces of personally identifying information are not posted in the meetings. Some participants may have email addresses specifically for the online Al-Anon meeting use and some use pseudonyms.
- Each meeting may have its own entry procedures. Some online meetings have an email contact where a “greeter” will provide the newcomer with specific directions to access the meeting.
- Meetings that don’t list a specific meeting time are held 24/7.
