Since 1984, the Al-Anon Family Groups’ World Service Office (WSO) has conducted a membership survey every three years. The eleventh, and most recent, iteration took place in 2015.
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.
