Welcome to West Suburban Alano!
West Suburban Alano is OPEN! Please see the list for in-person and Zoom meetings. Face masks are required in all public places as of July 25, 2020. We will update this list regularly to have the most current information available. Please stay safe and if you are sick or at risk, please stay home.
West Suburban Alano is a non-profit corporation designed for our members to meet and share their experience, strength and hope with each other because of our common concern for people trying to achieve and maintain a life free from the use of alcohol or drugs.
The Alano Club offers the recovering alcoholic a place to go, to take a break and have a cup of coffee with men and women who understand the program and the process of recovery. We come together to find support and to learn about the many other resources available to the recovering alcoholic in our community.
“To provide a financially self-sustaining facility that promotes a drug and alcohol free environment of personal and social growth for the individual and family.”
Alcoholics Anonymous does not finance or lend its name to any outside organization. The Alano Club is an outside organization, separate and distinct from AA, Alanon, or any other 12-step meeting. Each meeting held at the club is conducted by an autonomous group, and each group pays rent to the club to help pay expenses. Membership in the Alano Club is independent of membership in any of the various organizations who use the club’s facilities for their meetings.
