Extending the same comfort that we received as newcomers is as simple as leaving a copy of the new issue of Al-Anon Faces Alcoholism 2019 (AFA) in a public place. Reaching out to families and friends of alcoholics who are still suffering is a sure way to give back in gratitude for the gift of recovery we received.
The latest issue of AFA features new stories by Al-Anon members who share their experience as newcomers, as well as new articles by mental health professionals who explain why they refer their clients and patients to Al-Anon.
Why not make AFA magazines part of your group’s public outreach plans? What if someone can find help in Al-Anon because of something they read in a magazine that you left behind in a doctor’s waiting room, a library or any other public place in your community?
