The Al-Anon Family Groups Headquarters, Inc. publishes literature containing the experience, strength, and hope of its members who apply the principles for their own recovery. Among the Conference-Approved Literature (CAL), there are at least 15 books, 70 pamphlets, and a monthly magazine, The Forum. This wealth of information from those who have lived with alcoholism is used for individual daily reading and as a focus for study by members during their meetings. All are printed in English and many have been translated in over 30 languages and used worldwide. Videos and other materials are also available.
Al-Anon Conference Approved Literature (CAL) presents the Al-Anon program
to members of our fellowship and the public at large.
All Al-Anon CAL bears the seal along with the words:
Approved by World Service Conference Al-Anon Family Groups. This seal and statement give the assurance that the literature is produced by Al-Anon and is consistent with the Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions, and Twelve Concepts of Al-Anon Family Groups.
