Since its founding in 1951, Al Anon Family Groups has published more than 100 books and pamphlets that share a 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. It is only one tool of the Al Anon program.
Al Anon literature is most fully understood when used in conjunction with other tools of the program. The books and pamphlets can strengthen your recovery, but they cannot substitute for the help and healing that takes place at Al Anon meetings in the context of a complete recovery program.
Uncovering the problem, plus facts, questions and answers and personal stories, are all included.
An information-packed, pocket-sized tool of the Al-Anon program; every Al-Anon member should have one!
An informative pamphlet produced for use in Alateen groups and by Alateen members; every Alateen member should have one!
This recovery pamphlet aims to provide identification information, plus helpful response-suggestions.
Youth and the Alcoholic Parent
This pamphlet covers a span of useful questions and answers that a youth might ask about a parent’s excessive drinking, with suggestions to help him or herself, plus a summary of suggestions.
This service pamphlet is a must for Al-Anon members doing service work in Alateen, plus the membership generally, toward appreciating our collective responsibility for the Alateen program as an important part of all Al-Anon Family Groups.
In the beginning, a journey we have all undertaken, a Sponsor can be an invaluable source of comfort and support, walking and talking, telephone calls, spiritual guidance; an important component the gentle and loving program that Al-Anon Family Groups offer. It is often through sponsorship we learn or re-learn how to be intimate with another human being, which all helps us to understand what it means to trust.
Have you ever arrived at an Al-Anon meeting to discover the key isn’t available?, the hour starts getting late… and so the members find somewhere to sit and hold a meeting, then struggle to remember the Suggested Al-Anon/Alateen Welcome (etc.)? This is the pamphlet for you!
“Anonymity in Al-Anon is a sacred trust, basic to our fellowship and its survival.’ Ref: Al-Anon/Alateen Service Manual (P-24/27)
