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.
"When someone else's drinking is part of the problem... Al-Anon can help" (pullout quote displayed on the front cover of this service pamphlet)
This pamphlet sets out the, 'extraordinary work of two ordinary women.’
Al-Anon is a program of action; service is willingness in action, to give back to the fellowship (usually, eventually, with an attitude of gratitude). When we get into service, we are encouraged to have a service sponsor who has already "walked the talk", and therefore able to guide us along our way.
