How Can We Help?
The main objective of FamAnonmAnonis to provide a platform by giving common support and offer a discussion where you can share your problems and experiences for those people especially family members and friends who are present, suspected or previous drugs and liquor addicts. The group members learn how to come to terms with the problem disturbing their lives.
Our work has shown that providing assistance to family and friends of an addict means a great deal to the person with drug related issues.
Group meetings encourage addicts to learn from others experience how to quit addiction. Understanding that addict requires help to function without the substance is usually the realisation members come to.
Drug dependency is a common thing in today's world which in most cases bring chaos to the addict's life, but also to the lives of the addict's friends and families. Persons, whose family members or close friends are dependent on drugs or alcohol suffer psychological and quite often even physical pain as they watch how dependency destroys their loved ones, and they can't do anything to help them. Families Anonymous helps parents, companions, spouse and relatives.
A self-help world-wide fellowship of families and friends of drug users and those with behavioural problems is Families Anonymous (FamAnon). A few Los Angeles families started FamAnonmAnonin the United States in 1971 and adopted 12 Steps of Alcoholic Anonymous as their core principles. There are about 50 groups around the United Kingdom now, while 1st one was created in London in 1980.
