*Al-Anon/Alateen groups and members in Massachusetts are requested to order through the Massachusetts Area LDC, rather than through Al-Anon Family Group Headquarters. Orders made to the Massachusetts Area LDC helps support Al-Anon/Alateen outreach in Massachusetts. Orders are usually filled within 48 hours of receipt. Our Packing & Handling fee for orders under $100.00 is up to $4.00 less than what is charged by WSO.

The content of the literature is contributed by Al-Anon and Alateen members themselves. All Al-Anon/Alateen literature is Conference Approved Literature (CAL). This means that before publication and sale, literature is approved by the World Service Conference, which is comprised of representatives of all Al-Anon groups in the United States and Canada.
