Nar-Anon members consist of friends and relatives who are concerned about the addiction or drug problem of another person. When you live with someone that suffers from addiction or has a drug problem you're just as affected as they are. Anyone using drugs or suffering from addiction needs help but so does the relatives or friends and that's where Nar-Anon Family Groups can help.
Adapted from Narcotics Anonymous, Nar-Anon uses the Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions and Twelve Concepts to help individuals that are affected by someone else's addiction. This Twelve-Step Program of recovery holds group meetings in the United States, Canada and worldwide.
It's extremely hard watching someone you love and care about destroy themselves with drugs, relatives and friends are fearful, desperate and broken inside. Living with someone who uses drugs or that's addicted to them makes life very chaotic and worrisome. Nar-Anon members share their experiences with each other and when utilizing the Twelve-Steps they're able to offer each other strength, hope, and recovery.
It doesn't cost anything to attend Nar-Anon Family Group Meetings, the only requirement is that a relative or friend of yours has a problem with drugs or suffers from addiction. Each Nar-Anon Group supports itself by collecting donations to cover only their expenses.
You can't control what someone else does but you can control how it affects you. Attending Nar-Anon meetings and listening to others who share similar feelings and experiences reassures you that you're not alone. People don't come to Nar-Anon meetings seeking recovery for the addict or drug user, they come for wisdom and strength to better understand addiction and to become emotionally happier and healthier for their own recovery.
The Principles of Nar-Anon include the Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions and Twelve Concepts. Utilizing these principles can benefit your life in ways you can't imagine, you can't stop your loved one or friend from using drugs but you can make a difference in your life and your sanity. Members of Nar-Anon care about others as well as themselves so don't hesitate to find a group meeting near you.
If you or someone you know could benefit from Nar-Anon Family Group meeting, locations are just a click away.
