Since its founding in 1951, Al‑Anon Family Groups published more than 100 books and pamphlets that share Al-Anon’s single purpose: to help family and friends recover from the effects of someone else’s drinking. This literature supplements the face-to-face meetings where Al‑Anon members share their insights and experiences with each other.
Al-Anon literature develops entirely from the writings of Al-Anon members throughout the world. Al-Anon literature is usually available at Al-Anon meetings. Some cities, states, and provinces have their own Al-Anon literature distribution centers, where a larger variety of literature is available for purchase.
Literature is also available for purchase on Al-Anon’s on-line store.
