He returned to Llanview as a young adult, carrying a grudge against Max for abandoning him and his mother financially and emotionally. Briefly he was adopted by Asa Buchanan but eventually reconciled with his father. Soon afterward Al became involved with Jennifer Rappaport , a relationship that almost destroyed him.


After realizing Jen was using him, Al tried to get his life back on track, and secretly took a job as the Voice of the Night on the college radio station. But the pressures of school and work led him to take speed to cope, and eventually he became addicted. Marcie Walsh, a tutor hired by his parents, not only helped him with his grades but also staged an intervention so he could detoxify. Drug free, Al vowed to straighten himself out, and embarked on a sweet romantic relationship with Marcie. The two fell in love, and he supported her during her problems with Madison and Deke, who eventually tried to kill her by leaving her in a dumpster. Al rescued her, but she caught a virus, which she passed on to Al. His system weakened by his drug use, Al's liver failed. Gabrielle donated part of her liver during a transplant, but Al died. Unable to exist apart from Marcie, he begged his deceased stepmother, Luna, to help him find his way back to Marcie.
