Ordering Literature

Ordering Literature through NEI

Does your group need S.L.A.A. Basic Texts, pamphlets or chips? Local S.L.A.A. meetings in Eastern MA and Rhode Island are encouraged to order their S.L.A.A. literature through New England Intergroup (NEI).  Literature is an excellent tool to support recovery and is often used for step work and in sponsorship.

How do I order literature through NEI?

Simply download and fill out the order form on this page.  You may scan and email it.  Orders may be mailed to our P.O. Box (please see address at the top of the downloadable form).

Please click on the form to download the Excel order form: NEI_Literature_Order_Form_downloadable-1

What are the timelines for ordering literature?

Typically you can submit literature orders by the first weekend of each month and they will be available for pick on the following Sunday at the NEI Business Meeting.  Orders mailed to the P.O. Box must be received at least three weeks in advance of the next NEI Meeting in which you want to pick up your order.

The following is a list of 2019 NEI meeting dates:

– January 13, 2019

When can I pick up my literature order?

The Literature Coordinator will contact you to let you know that your order has been received and will inform you of the date when you can pick up your literature.

NEI meetings take place the second Sunday of each month (with a few exceptions) from 5:00-7:00pm at the Newton-Wellesley Hospital, Main Hospital Building 2nd Floor, Bowles Conference Room #6, 2014 Washington Street, Newton, MA.  Please see dates above for upcoming meeting dates.

What form(s) of payment is accepted?

NEI accepts cash, check or money orders.

Can NEI mail literature to me?

Unfortunately NEI does not mail literature at this time.  Literature may also be ordered by mail through Fellowship Wide Services (F.W.S.)  F.W.S. does charge for shipping and orders can be expedited as they accept credit and debit card payments. There are additional items you can order through F.W.S. that are not available through NEI. Some examples are e-books, CDs on S.L.A.A.-related topics, slogan bracelets, S.L.A.A. pamphlets in Spanish, etc.

Are there other ways I can purchase literature besides through NEI?

Yes. Literature is available for purchase at some local S.L.A.A. individual meetings.  There are some meetings which may provide S.L.A.A. pamphlets for attendees for a small donation or free of charge.  It is also available for purchase at our NEI’s Spring and Fall Recovery Gatherings.
