Articles by professionals are often the “tipping point” for the potential newcomer to follow through on their therapist’s/counselor’s or health care clinician’s recommendation to attend Al‑Anon. In these articles, professionals describe how they identify families of alcoholics, the importance of family recovery, and the benefits of attending Al-Anon or Alateen. The desired outcome is that Al-Anon Faces Alcoholism (AFA) readers will be motivated to take the next step—to contact Al-Anon for more information.
Please invite Al-Anon-friendly professionals you know to write an article for the next issue of the AFA magazine and give them a copy of the AFA Writing Guide for Professionals. If you prefer for the WSO to contact the professional, please send the professional’s name, email address, and telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org so that the WSO can contact them while retaining your anonymity.
