Welcome to the Alano Club
The Alano Club of Fort Walton Beach is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation designed to provide a safe and supportive meeting place for individuals and groups in alcohol and addiction recovery.
We strive daily to bring the message of experience, strength and hope to all people seeking recovery from alcohol and drug addiction.
The Alano Club of Fort Walton Beach is not affiliated with any of the 12-step recovery groups or organizations that meet in Clubhouse Building or anywhere else. It is not bound by any individual group traditions or restrictions. This allows the club to serve all members and groups equally.
What our ‘ALANO’ Club means in recovery?
Al = Alcoholic/All Addiction AN = anonymous O = Organization
The Club hosts more than 40 meetings and study groups each week!
These are approximately 30% of all meetings in the Fort Walton Beach, Florida area.
These meetings have helped tens of thousands of alcoholics and addicts recover in its nearly 45-year history.
The Club’s location, accessibility, and warm welcoming people make it a positive and effective place in our local recovery community.
Visit the Alano Club and grab a cup of coffee. Meet old-timers and newly recovering alcoholics and addicts.
The Alano Club is a place to go, to take a break, and to have a cup of coffee.
A place to visit with men and women who understand the program and the process of recovery.
The stricken come to the Club to find support and learn a way out from their seemingly hopeless lifestyle.
They see the wonder of recovery in others and have a chance to change their lives.
Many 12-Step and other groups have meetings each day including:
* Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)
* Narcotics Anonymous (NA)
* Cocaine Anonymous (CA)
– Book Study Meetings
– Speaker Meetings
– Other recovery meetings and events
The Alano Club offers study group meetings, weekly special speaker meetings and regular fellowship events.
These including holiday cookouts, trips, and an annual New Year’s Eve event with speakers, music, and dancing.
* The Alano Club is an outside organization, separate and distinct from AA, Al-Anon, or any other 12-Step group.
Each meeting held at the Club is conducted as an autonomous group, and each group pays rent to the Club to help pay expenses.
Rent from group meetings covers only a portion of the Club’s expenses.
Donations from other meetings, individuals, and local organizations offer much needed help.
