Al-Anon invites professionals
to submit articles

  • Do you refer your clients or patients to Al-Anon?
  • Have you observed that Al-Anon is a helpful supplement to the counseling or treatment that you provide?
  • How have your clients or patients benefited from Al-Anon?
Submit an article about your professional experience

Al-Anon Family Group Headquarters invites you to submit an article about your professional experience with Al-Anon for our annual public outreach magazine, Al-Anon Faces Alcoholism.

Al-Anon members annually distribute about 350,000 copies of the magazine throughout the U.S. and Canada. The purpose of the magazine is to inform the general public about how people affected by someone else\u2019s problem drinking can find help in Al-Anon. It encourages people to visit an Al-Anon meeting to learn more.

Short articles written by professionals are vital in explaining the effects of alcoholism and problem drinking and the importance of attending our mutual support group program. In nine Membership Surveys conducted since 1984, an average of 46 percent of our Al-Anon members reported that a professional referral was the most influential factor that motivated them to begin attending Al-Anon.

While the general public is the primary audience for the magazine, your professional expertise and experience utilizing Al-Anon as a resource can also be informative to other professionals who may be unfamiliar with Al-Anon.
