The Durham Alano Club (DAC) is a 501© 3 non-profit corporation dedicated to serving individuals and families who are recovering from the disease of alcoholism.

NO! The Durham Alano Club is not affiliated with the programs of Alcoholics Anonymous or Al-Anon Family Groups.

The DAC provides a comfortable facility for AA, Al-Anon and Alateen groups to conduct meetings each week. The club also provides meeting space for special fellowship events such as workshops, speaker meetings and book studies. The DAC also has an active Social Committee that plans events for its members and the fellowship, such as potluck dinners, dances, and picnics.

No. Anyone may attend any of the AA, Al-Anon or Alateen meetings held in the DAC meeting rooms. Only DAC members and their guests may use the Members’ Lounge.

Any current member of AA, Al-Anon, or Alateen is eligible to become a DAC member.

Membership dues are one of the ways the DAC raises the funds required to keep the doors open and provide its services to members of AA, Al- Anon and Alateen.

DAC members receive their own coffee mug and have access to the member’s lounge. From time to time there will be social events for members at no cost or at a discounted cost. DAC members may serve on the Board of Directors, vote on issues concerning the Club and serve on various committees. This is OUR Club!

There is a “No Smoking” policy that applies to the entire property; the facility and campus are non-smoking.

The parking area of the 400 Crutchfield Street Building, where the Alano Cub is located, is divided into two sections, one in front of the building and one in the rear of the building. It is OK to park in either area but we ask that if you can, when the lot is nearly full, please park off property so that other tenants/businesses in the building and individuals who may have trouble walking can utilize these parking spaces. Parking may be especially challenging during the weekday noon meeting because of the other businesses in our building; please consider parking somewhere close and walking across the street to help alleviate that challenge and again be respectful of our neighbors.
