Does someone you love have a drinking problem?

In 1949, a California Family Group member, Ruth G., started a twelve-page monthly magazine called “The Family Forum,” for family members of alcoholics.


This formed the first connection between family groups in the USA, and later abroad, and eventually evolved into Al-Anon’s monthly magazine, the 'Forum.'


The 'Forum' gives Al-Anon and Alateen members the chance to write about their experiences, before and after, they began to attend meetings.


Articles are reviewed to assure a broad-based publication useful to an  international audience for personal growth. It also offers meeting ideas and materials for use in group discussions.
