Worried about someone's drug abuse?

Do you lie awake worrying about your loved one? Do you feel frustrated trying to control his/her behavior?

Families Anonymous (FA) is a group of concerned relatives and friends whose lives have been adversely affected by a loved one's abuse of drugs or alcohol. The FA support program follows steps and traditions similar to those of Alcoholics Anonymous. Help is available at Families Anonymous (FA) on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM at the First Parish Unitarian Church, 1 Powder House Rd., in Groton, MA. Meetings are held in the Parish House next door to the church.
