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 illustrated pamphlet, packed with useful insights about applying the Twelve Traditions, depicts a, 'majority of members from every walk of life, young or old... engaged in activities that represent group actions in a variety of settings that might easily be recognized the world over' (from the Introduction)
In Alateen, SERENITY means peace of mind or the ability to cope with explosive situations in a calm manner' (from the Introduction); includes 10 Alateen meeting topics
Teens benefit from developing an understanding of the concept of detachment, especially detaching with love from unhealthy behaviour; includes 10 Alateen meeting topics
Al-Anon is a program of action; service is willingness in action, to give back to the fellowship (usually, eventually, with an attitude of gratitude). When we get into service, we are encouraged to have a service sponsor who has already "walked the talk", and therefore able to guide us along our way.
