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.

This soft cover book explores the many facets of our recovery in relationships, drawing on the experience, strength and hope of hundreds of members. It sheds light on how alcoholism has affected many different types of relationships in many different ways. It provides hope by sharing why various Al-Anon tools have been helpful in improving our relationships and our attitudes about them; indexed

Reaching for Personal Freedom: Living the Legacies, is a workbook for members to gradually progress through Al-Anon's three spiritual legacies: Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions, and Twelve Concepts of Service. Sooner or later, most members struggle to know how to apply the program legacies to life beyond the safety offered inside Al-Anon meeting rooms. This workbook addresses that process. The sharings are fresh, and the questions inviting contemplative thought. Recommended: Date the entries in your workbook for observing personal progress whenever you choose to look back.
