...when someone you care about uses drugs

click logo for website

When drug addiction enters a family via one of its members, the effect can be devastating. If you have reason to believe or even a vague suspicion that someone close to you may have a drug problem, we know how you feel. We know what it is like to be alone with this problem. We remember the feelings of panic and frustration that resulted from this discovery. We in Families Anonymous have experienced this too.
We use first names only, as this is an anonymous programme. No dues or fees are required. The weekly meetings are regularly held throughout the year. Newcomers are welcome without prior arrangements. You will not be urged to participate in the group discussions, but may join in and ask questions if you wish. We do understand how you feel. There could be a meeting near you
