Conference-Approved Literature

Al-Anon offers an extensive array of literature covering topics relating to people affected by someone else's drinking. Pamphlets and books explain how the program works and how it helps friends and families of alcoholics.

You will find many of these publications available at Al-Anon meetings in Northern Virginia and elsewhere, including publications designed especially for the Al-Anon newcomer. Many pamphlets and brochures are made available for free at meetings through the donations of meeting participants. Some, especially hard-cover books, are available at reasonable prices.

You can order Al-Anon literature through a local meeting, or order from the Service Center of Northern Virginia. An order form allows you to order by mail or in person at the Service Center.
