One of the most valuable resources available to members is Al-Anon literature.

Please note that only literature approved by the Al-Anon Family Groups World Service Conference is used at Al-Anon meetings and functions. This Conference Approved Literature (CAL) contains readings written by and selected by participants in the Al-Anon program, which are designed to follow the principles of Al-Anon. These principles include the concept of neutrality and respect for the personal beliefs of individuals in the Al-Anon program.

Al-Anon’s monthly magazine, THE FORUM, contains many personal stories of inspiration, some of which are made available each month.

You can order Al-Anon literature through a local meeting or the Literature Distribution Centers listed below.
