Since 1984, the Al-Anon Family Groups’ World Service Office (WSO) has conducted a membership survey every three years.
Findings from the survey are provided as an aid to professionals, researchers, students, the media, or anyone seeking information about Al-Anon Family Groups.
The survey also documents the benefits of Al-Anon from the perspective of members who have seen the quality of their lives improve after participating in the Al-Anon program.
Specific objectives for the study are to:
- Determine the demographic and sociographic profile of Al-Anon Family Group members.
- Identify the relationship between the Al-Anon member and the alcoholic.
- Measure the impact that an alcoholic has had on the Al-Anon members’ lives.
- Determine the impact of the Al-Anon Family Groups program on the quality of life of the members.
