Since 1997

Al-Anon in Area 89 (Saskatchewan) has a deep history of developing and encouraging Al-Anon groups focused on the needs of those who grew up in homes affected by the family disease of alcoholism. Journey to Serenity is our way of paying back to our Area 89 Al-Anon community and of celebrating the recovery we've found in the Al-Anon Family Groups.

Celebrating Recovery

Every year (almost) we hold a recovery event with first-class speakers from Al-Anon and Alcoholics Anonymous, along with workshops, panels, meetings and fellowship. It's an annual celebration of recovery – that's why we call it a Festival!

Join Us

We purposely hold Journey to Serenity in smaller, more intimate venues, so that our participants can have the best possible opportunity for fellowship.
