Conference Approved Literature (CAL)

Al-Anon Family Group Headquarters, Inc. publishes books, pamphlets, service materials, and magazines.  Most Al-Anon and Alateen meetings offer complimentary literature to newcomers, and offer books and pamphlets for sale.   

Al-Anon/Alateen literature and service materials help members to continue their recovery between meetings and gain insight into themselves and the principles of the Al-Anon/Alateen program.  Conference Approved Literature (CAL) is written by and for our members and goes through a thorough review process by numerous Al-Anon members to assure that it conveys the program in a consistent and comprehensive manner.  

This literature supplements the face-to-face meetings where Al-Anon members share their insights and experience with each other.
