Members are encouraged to purchase literature from their local Al-Anon Family Groups or the
ND Literature Distribution Center.
North Dakota is blessed to have a Literature Distribution Center run by a grateful member of Al-Anon. Please email
Literature can also be purchased directly from the World Service Office (WSO).
Purchasing literature directly via these distributors benefits all Al-Anon Family Groups because the money stays within the organization instead of going to third-party vendors.
The Al-Anon Family Groups use literature that is referred to as Conference Approved Literature (CAL).
CAL provides a unified view of Al-Anon/Alateen to members, professionals, other indivduals, and outside agencies. This helps to keep Al-Anon's message in focus and encourage unity.
Conference Approved Literature (CAL) and Al-Anon/Alateen service tools are displayed, distributed and used at Al-Anon and Alateen meetings, conferences and conventions.
Service tools produced by the World Service Office reflect the Al-Anon/Alateen service structure and the shared experiences of our membership.
CAL can be identified by the Al-Anon triangle and circle symbol.
