Al‑Anon/Alateen Information Services of Greater Minneapolis serves Al‑Anon and Alateen groups and members in the West Metro Area, including Hennepin, Scott, Carver, Wright and parts of Anoka and Dakota counties.

At the Information Services office at 7204 West 27th Street (NW corner of Louisiana Avenue and 27th Street) in St. Louis Park you can buy the full range of Al‑Anon and Alateen literature, from books such as Paths to Recovery and Living Today in Alateen to pamphlets and Newcomers’ packets.

It serves as a clearing house for information on Al‑Anon and Alateen meetings and events in the Minneapolis and west metro area. Its activities are directed by officers and committee chairs elected by representatives from Al‑Anon and Alateen groups in its service area who attend monthly second Wednesday meetings at the office in St. Louis Park.

A small paid staff, helped by many volunteers, keeps the office open. schedules volunteers to answer telephone inquiries in their homes, sends out a quarterly newsletter, and manages the ordering and sale of Al‑Anon/Alateen Conference Approved Literature (CAL).

Literature Available

Al‑Anon/Alateen Information Services of Greater Minneapolis carries Al‑Anon and Alateen Conference Approved Literature (CAL), including books and pamphlets.

One Day at a Time in Al‑Anon (B-6) and Courage to Change (B-16) are two daily readers that offer inspiration. Hope for Today (B-27) is a third daily reader written by Al‑Anon members who grew up with the family problem of alcoholism, but which is valued by Al‑Anon members of all backgrounds. All three readers have an index in the back so you may look up common Al‑Anon topics, like the slogans, steps, traditions, and a multitude of other subjects.

One of our recent books, Discovering Choices (B-30), was written by Al‑Anon members about recovery in relationships. This book offers questions for thought and discussion after every chapter. It includes stories submitted by members including some from local members.

Our latest book, Many Voices, One Journey (B-31), is a history of Al‑Anon from its beginnings. It tells Al‑Anon’s story of growth and recovery as experienced by the fellowship and its members over most of the past 65 years

For those who like to read, Al‑Anon and Alateen offer many books, booklets, pamphlets, and supplementary materials like bookmarks, all of which are available at our office.

We also have a nice selection of step, slogan, month and year anniversary medallions.

Stop by and check out our literature, or call us at 952-920-3961 and we can ship to you.
