Al-Anon Family Group Membership Survey

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.
