Families Anonymous is a world-wide fellowship of family members and friends who have been affected by another's abuse of mind-altering substances or related behavioural problems. Fam Anon has groups which meet regularly and spread throughout the country. Even if there is only a suspicion of a problem, any concerned individual is deeply encouraged to attend the meetings.
Fam Anon was founded by a group of American families in 1971. In the United Kingdom, the first group started operating in 1980, and currently, there are over 50 groups in different parts of the country.
12 Steps and 12 Traditions, first used by Alcoholic Anonymous, are the basis of the self-help society, the Fellowship and its programme.
The main objective of Fam Anon is 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. This group facilitates our members to figure out that how to grapple with the issues which are disturbing and affecting your lives.
The broader mean of helping family and friends simply implies helping them in critical situation in drug and liquor addiction.
Group gatherings enable members to have an honest and steady relationship with the addict. This approach helps them to understand that they need to live without using drugs and alcohol.
In today's society use and dependence on hazardous substances is common, it creates negative impacts for both the individuals using as well as their family members. This is so difficult for those who have children's, families or loved ones using drugs and dependent on drugs, they become emotionally, physically and mentally unstable. The loved ones observe miserably watch them suffer and it's really to manage this situation. There is help for friends, partner, parents and relatives in Families Anonymous.
Families Anonymous (FamAnon) is a fellowship based on self-help that has spread across the world in which loved ones of drug addicts and those with behavioural issues gather. Fam Anon was established in 1971 in UK by the cooperation of groups families of Los Angeles. It is based on Twelve Steps of Alcoholic Anonymous.

The focus is on helping families and providing them support while coping with the addict. It offers the addicts a possibility to get in charge of their lives once again and to find a reason to live drug-free life.
