Since its founding in 1951, Al-Anon Family Groups published more than 100 books and pamphlets sharing Al-Anon’s single purpose: to help family and friends recover from the effects of someone else’s drinking. Al-Anon Conference Approved Literature (CAL) is an important piece of our recovery.
Our literature supplements the face-to-face meetings where Al Anon members share their insights, experience, strength, and hope.
Al-Anon literature is usually available at Al-Anon meetings. Al-Anon literature can deepen an understanding of recovery in Al-Anon.
Have questions? Need recommendations? Ask anyone at a meeting! Ask you sponsor!
