Families Anonymous Richmond (FA) is a Twelve-Step support group for those concerned about their loved ones abuse of alcohol, drugs, or related behavior problems, whether current, suspected, or past abuse.
There are three (3) weekly meetings in the Richmond, Virginia area.
A group consists primarily of parents, but relatives and friends, as well as others dealing with a family member's addiction, are welcome members of the group. The program focuses on the recovery of the family, not the user. The basic strength of the program comes from fellowship and sharing of concerns. Members learn that the addict's illness affects the lives of everyone close to them and that there are ways to regain their serenity. To get their lives back together, FA members work the twelve steps, attend weekly meetings, and take advantage of the fellowship that is freely offered by other members. Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of the meeting & provides protection & respect for the fellowship.
There are no fees or dues and each group is self supporting. Most of the literature is free.
