How do you get the most from Al Anon when some of it isn't your thing?

I go for periods and first went a few years ago. Sometimes I feel a real sense of camaraderie/connection and take away useful insights, at others I feel I am being a bit indoctrinated (a BIG no no for me) by a theory I have questions and concerns about. I'm an athiest and so the higher power talk can be awkward for me, but it's totally not my only issue.

I am always cautious of anything that doesn't lend itself to being questionned/evolving, but I do like to know it's there and like the principal of mutual support. Have you had similar responses? How do you run with that to take what you can from this whilst remaining 'true' to yourself?
