Statement on Anonymity There may be some who are not familiar with our traditions of personal anonymity at the public level. We respectfully ask that no Al-Anon, Alateen, or AA member be identified by full name or picture in published or broadcast reports, including those on the Internet. The assurance of anonymity is essential to our efforts to help families and friends of alcoholics, so that they know Al-Anon and Alateen meetings are safe, confidential places to get help. We gratefully appreciate the cooperation of the media in this matter.
