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.
