Ever since the Alano Club West (ACW) was incorporated in 1960, we have been an important part of the recovery community in the Mid-Michigan area. We have been a guiding beacon for thousands of desperate alcoholics who have lost their way on the path of life. We do this by hosting 75 Alcoholics Anonymous related meetings a week and we are proud state that we are open seven days a week, 365 days a year. The ACW is a place anyone can visit and enjoy the fellowship of others in recovery.
It is important to note that the ACW is not a treatment or rehab facility. We have one purpose and that single purpose is to assist in the rehabilitation of alcoholics. ACW achieves this objective by providing a safe space for members of Alcoholics Anonymous, Alanon, and Alateen to meet on a regular basis. Our facility also offers recovery literature and information about local recovery services in and around Lansing, Michigan.
As many of us can attest alcoholism is often accompanied by isolation and sense hopelessness. In order to combat this aspect of our disease, the ACW provides a safe place for individuals to venture out of their isolation and join a friendly fellowship. We host numerous occurrences throughout the year, such as: picnics, breakfasts, dinners, and special holiday events. Our goal is to foster a strong fellowship in a clean, safe, and welcoming environment.
If you or anyone you know has an issue with alcohol and would like help, please attend one of our many meetings. Times for meetings can be found under the “Meeting” tab. If you have any questions about our facility feel free to call our phone number (517) 321-4989.
