An local individual who has addicts in his/her family wants to form a bilingual Nar-Anon group for the Vankleek Hill area. This would be a group for people who are struggling with a loved one’s addiction. In other words, it is for members of addicts’ families. It is based on the Narcotics Anonymous 12 steps but is adapted for family members. It is a self-help group. Members cope together, with the help of literature and getting together and talking about their struggles and how they manage to live with them day to day; the group will assist members to find help and reassurance and to know that they are not alone.
The group will be led by a local person who will accept support from members. Meetings will happen weekly or bi-weekly (every two weeks) according to the need and wishes of the team. Just one or two replies will get the group started. The organizer knows that drug addiction is very much a reality in this region. You can email to express your interest and your name and participation will be kept confidential.
