Recovering Families

We believe that addiction is a family illness.  In order for there to be true healing everyone must pursue their own recovery from the effects of this disease.  Many families just want to focus on "helping" their loved one with their drug or alcohol addiction.  While this can be a good thing, it can also cause problems for the whole family.  Al-Anon is a 12-step program designed for friends and family members of addicts.  We highly encourage all friends and family members to go to Al-Anon meetings, get a sponsor, and start the 12-steps yourselves.  This is by far the most loving thing you can do for your loved one with a drug or alcohol addiction and for yourself.  For more info on Al-Anon or to find a meeting in your area go to
