Splay of Austra-Link editions


Austra-Link:

In the pages of this monthly magazine, Al-Anon and Alateen members share their experience, strength and hope as they do in meetings. Through this voice of the fellowship, individual members and groups can be heard by many. Written sharings are vital in helping members find growth, serenity and recovery through the Al-Anon program.

Literature Review: Throughout 2013 we previewed and reviewed some of our Al-Anon books. In 2014 we have continued discussing CAL but with greater emphasis on pamphlets and other tools that will aid our recovery.

          Contribute articles:

   
 

Al-Anon and Alateen members are invited to contribute articles, sharing their recovery.
