Mission Statement

To operate a financially self-supporting club that provides a safe and supportive environment for individuals and families recovering from any addiction(s) through various 12 step programs.—Adopted by Board of Directors on June 9, 2014

The East Side Alano Club is an organization, separate and distinct from Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon, or any other 12-step meeting.  Each meeting held at the club is conducted by an autonomous group, and each group makes contributions to the club for use of meeting space.  Membership in the East Side Alano Club is independent of membership in any of the various organizations who use the club’s facilities for their meetings.


The  East Side Alano Club of Madison, Inc. held meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) first at 853 Williamson Street in Madison, WI.  Later it moved to 2222 Independence Lane just north of East Washington Avenue.  Finally in 1982 a former Baptist church was purchased at 1017 Northport Drive and became the current location of our clubhouse.  We now are home to meetings of AA, Al-Anon, and Heroin Anonymous and numerous social events.
