WHAT I LEARNED: This leaflet started out in a World Service Office newsletter for professionals to educate them on how Al-Anon uses the word “detachment” but this outreach piece soon became a runaway hit with members for their own personal recovery. At a meeting last year, I heard this leaflet read aloud & the first 4 paragraphs sounded almost like a prayer. I have not been able to read it any other way since.
**BONUS: An electronic version of this leaflet can now be downloaded directly from the World Service Office website by clicking this link: Detachment leaflet
***UPDATE (8/7/16): This “Detachment” leaflet is now featured on Episode #2 of my “CAL Chat” podcast where the guest shares how she uses it for outreach purposes!
