Hazelden.org and Al-Anon.org offer free literature for those who need information regarding the Al-Anon program. Alcoholics Anonymous is a support group for men and women who suffer from alcoholism. Al-Anon is a spin-off of AA that provides support for family and friends affected by someone with a drinking problem.
Literature is the backbone of any AA or Al-Anon program. Without literature outlining steps to follow toward recovery, individuals who suffer directly or indirectly from alcoholism would not have a clear path toward rational thinking. Since alcoholism affects many lives, Al-Anon offers strength and hope to those who do not struggle personally with alcoholism but are close to people who do struggle with the disease.
