Attending Family Support Groups such as Al-anon and Nar-anon as well as other related meetings are an important part of the recovery process for the entire family. Substance use disorders share many characteristics of a traditional medical disease process. The field of substance use disorder treatment and recovery are best described as a “family disease”. The impact of an active substance use disorder affects the entire family system, thus the family in recovery blossoms with education and support. Listed below are some local Family Support Meetings you may wish to attend. As with all new meetings attend several at different locations and times to find the best fit for you. Families that thrive in recovery find that regular meeting attendance is helpful.Find a meeting
