The Four Seasons of Recovery for Parents of Alcoholics and Addicts
As PAL groups grew in popularity, founder Mike Speakman wrote a book “The Four Seasons of Recovery for Parents of Alcoholics and Addicts,” based on the principles used in the educational portion of the meetings. He graciously gifted the rights to the book to PAL and now all proceeds go directly toward opening new PAL groups across the country. This is a highly recommended resource.
