Al-Anon Literature Available at the World Service Office

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. 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.

Literature (Books, Pamplets, etc.) is available for purchase on Al-Anon’s online store. Click here to view detailed information about each item of Al‑Anon’s Conference Approved Literature.
