Fam­i­lies Anony­mous is a 12-Step fel­low­ship for fam­ily and friends who have known a feel­ing of des­per­a­tion con­cern­ing the de­struc­tive be­hav­ior of some­one very near to them, whether caused by drugs, al­co­hol, or re­lated be­hav­ioral prob­lems. Peo­ple can share prob­lems with oth­ers who un­der­stand, the de­tails of per­sonal sto­ries may dif­fer, but feel­ings and heart­break are the same. When you step into the room you are no longer alone, but among friends who have ex­pe­ri­enced sim­i­lar prob­lems. Any con­cerned per­son is en­cour­aged to at­tend the meet­ings, even if there is only a sus­pi­cion of a prob­lem your iden­tity is pro­tected in the meet­ings and are only known by first names. Anonymity of the mem­bers is para­mount to the suc­cess of the pro­gram. Fam­i­lies Anony­mous cel­e­brated their 40th An­niver­sary in 2011. They were formed in 1971 by a group of con­cerned par­ents in Cal­i­for­nia who were seek­ing ways of deal­ing with the prob­lem of sub­stance abuse and ad­dic­tion in their chil­dren. Mem­bers in­clude par­ents, grand­par­ents, sib­lings, spouses, sig­nif­i­cant oth­ers, other fam­ily mem­bers and friends of those with a cur­rent, sus­pected or for­mer drug prob­lem. The group has been one of the best kept se­crets in the re­cov­ery com­mu­nity, even though they have groups through­out the world. Peo­ple want­ing to at­tend meet­ings have noth­ing to lose but pain and anger. If you or some­one you know is ready to find the peace and Seren­ity that Fam­i­lies Anony­mous mem­bers have found through the work­ing of the FA pro­gram the group meets ev­ery Thurs­day from 7 to 8 p.m., lo­cated in Red Bud Road Plaza be­low Fit­ness First next to Cal­houn Coun­sel­ing Cen­ter (Dr. Bled­soe’s of­fice).
