Families Anonymous is a fellowship of parents, relatives and friends who have faced up to the reality that a loved one's addiction to alcohol, drugs, or harmful behaviors is seriously affecting our lives and ability to function. Just about every one of us has made the same statement at one time or another: "But I'm not the one who needs help!" It seems obvious when someone else has a problem. On reflection, we might ask ourselves: If the other person has the problem, how come my life seems unmanageable, and I feel like I am going insane?
Participants of Families Anonymous are dedicated to doing something constructive about our approach to someone else's problem. We begin to learn from our own experience and benefit from the shared experiences of others in the fellowship. We realize that we are not alone, and that we can know a new freedom from worry and despair. We can know peace. Join us.
