Due to concerns about the Coronavirus COVID-19 and Governor’s Shelter in Place orders, most Montana Al-Anon meetings have moved to online or phone meetings. Here are two resources to help you find a meeting online or by phone:

Montana Al-Anon Meetings
- Unless otherwise indicated, meetings last for one hour
- All meetings are non-smoking, in accordance with the Montana Clean Indoor Air Act
- Locations with handicap accessibility are indicated as wheelchair accessible in meeting “features”
“Families, Friends, and Observers Welcome”
Some meetings allow attendance by people who are not families and friends of alcoholics but who are interested in learning about Al-Anon Family Groups. People who may come to such meetings occasionally include students and professionals who work with alcoholics but do not necessarily feel that they have personally been affected by alcoholism.
“Families and Friends Only”
These meetings are limited to members/prospective members of Al-Anon, i.e. people whose lives are affected by someone else’s drinking. Groups that register a meeting as “families and friends only” may decide to hold an occasional meeting open to observers in order to reach out to professionals and others interested in Al-Anon.
Many have found understanding & compassion for alcoholic friends or relatives by attending OPEN meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). If you would like a schedule for local AA meetings, please visit Alcoholics Anonymous of Montana.
