WELCOME

If you have a family member or friend who suffers from the disease of addiction, you have come to the right place for help.  NAR-ANON is a worldwide fellowship of people who gather to share their experience, strength and hope for our recovery from the ravages that addiction has brought to our lives. It begins with our meetings and you are welcome to come and see how it works.

TWELVE STEPS OF NAR-ANON FAMILY GROUPS

We have included the 12 Steps here to give you a glimpse of the foundation upon which NAR-ANON is based.  When we learn how to apply these Steps to our lives, we develop a life saving program for us.  By coming to a meeting and listening to how others in our situation have adapted these Steps as a way of life, it can give you hope for the future.

1. We admitted we were powerless over the addict -- that our lives had become unmanageable.

2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
 
5. Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

6. Were entirely ready to have God remove these defects of character.

7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.

8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

9. Make direct amends to such people wherever possible except when to do so would injure them or others.

10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.

12. Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

NAR-ANON FAMILY GROUP

We have learned that addiction is an illness, not a moral issue. It is a two-fold disease: a physical allergy coupled with an obsession of the mind. It can be arrested, but never cured.  When we fully understand and accept that addiction is a disease, that it is both mental and physical, and that we are powerless over it; we become ready to learn a better way to live.  The Family Group is primarily for you who know or have known a feeling of desperation concerning the addiction problem of someone very near to you. We have traveled that unhappy road too, and found the answer with serenity and peace of mind. Keep an open mind and attend as many meetings as possible. Feel free to ask questions and to enter into the discussions. You will soon make new friends and will feel very much a part of the group.
