About Al-Anon Literature

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.

Many areas have their own Al-Anon literature distribution centers. To purchase literature locally, most meetings offer literature for purchase. You can also purchase it at the OaklandAFG Literature Distribution Center. Please call or text (248) 259-7027 to find out the hours when the office is open.
