Outreach to Professionals
The 2012 Al-Anon/Alateen Membership Survey indicates that over 46 percent of Al-Anon members attended their first meeting as the result of a professional referral. Professionals include doctors, therapists, religious leaders, nurses, attorneys, police, educators, and judges. Professionals also work in various facilities and institutions. We try to inform them what Al-Anon is and how to find us, so that they can refer their clients/patients to us. Numerous service tools are available to aid members in carrying the Al-Anon/Alateen message to the professional community.
Listed here are some of the service tools available for your use. Please note that some tools listed are available on-line; others can be ordered from your local Literature Distribution Center (LDC) or the WSO.
