In 2020, significant changes were made to our fellowship’s public outreach magazine Al‑Anon Faces Alcoholism (AFA). Two such changes were to remove the year from the cover and to make the magazine available for purchase throughout the year.

Al‑Anon member stories are timeless, and now AFA is timeless too. We may still update the sharings from time to time as needed to reflect the current membership, but the magazine will no longer appear to be “outdated” because of a past year on the cover.

AFA can be purchased any time throughout the year. If your group or service arm decides to make distributing AFA magazines your public outreach project, simply visit the Al-Anon Online Bookstore or reach out to your local Literature Distribution Center to order.

Consider handing copies of AFA directly to professionals as a tool to provide to their patients/clients who might need the help and hope Al‑Anon offers.
