A recent study has contradicted previous research. It suggests that Alcoholics Anonymous is 60 percent more effective than other forms of therapy in helping the addicted avoid relapses and stay sober. Family members also need help in grappling with the issue, and that task falls to Al-Anon, an organization that has had a presence in Fish Creek for decades. Volunteer Jody says it quickly becomes more than a support group for those who are involved.
Sessions happen Tuesday at 6:30 PM at a private residence. Al-Anon also operates in Sturgeon Bay with meetings on Wednesday at 8:00 AM at Hope Church and Saturday at 9:00 AM at Bayview Lutheran Church.
