Al-Anon uses only literature approved by the Al-Anon Family Groups World Service Conference at Al-Anon meetings and functions. This Conference Approved Literature (CAL) contains readings written by and selected by participants in the Al-Anon program, which are designed to follow the principles of Al-Anon. These principles include the concept of neutrality and respect for the personal beliefs of individuals in the Al-Anon program.

 

 
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.
 
 

 The WSO has made a small number of approved literature in eBook format available for download from these Canadian eBook platforms - Amazon.Kindle, iTunes and Kobo bookstores. Links have been added to each platform, beside their respective ebook below. This announcement is informational only, and not an endorsement of any electronic media provider, reader, or other products sold by electronic media providers.
