Al‑Anon’s Tradition Seven
“Every group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.”
While contributions cover each group’s rent and other expenses, the Seventh Tradition is essential at every level of Al‑Anon service. It is both a privilege and a responsibility for groups and members to ensure that not only their group, but all service levels remain self‑supporting. This keeps Al‑Anon free of outside influences that might divert us from our primary purpose of supporting families and friends of alcoholics.
