NAR-ANON shares Experience, Strength & HOPE . . .

for FAMILY MEMBER's or FRIEND's of addicts.
Come, "Find a Meeting".  

In the NAR-ANON program, we learn that drug addiction is a disease that we are not responsible for.  The drug user needs help and so do we.  We discovered many of our efforts to control or change the situation were often actually enabling or encouraging this person to continue a self-destructive pattern.  It has been a great relief to learn more effective ways of coping with this situation, while at the same time gaining some peace of mind, hope, and help for a better way to live.

You will hear others, who are going through similar problems, talk about how they cope and find recovery.

NAR-ANON can bring new insight about our attitudes, behavior and emotions.  It can be the source for regaining our own sanity and well-being.  We learn that addiction is a family disease and we need recovery too.

There are no charges or obligations as NAR-ANON is a non-profit organization.  We are not affiliated with any treatment program or hospitals and do not discriminate about any persons race, creed, sexual orientation, religion or lack of religion.  The weekly meetings are held regularly throughout the year.  Your attendance is welcomed without prior arrangements.  You will not be urged to participate in the group discussions, but may join in if you wish or ask questions before and after the meeting.

We do UNDERSTAND how you feel.
