SUPPORT FOR FAMILIES

Addiction inevitably becomes a family problem. At U-Turn, we treat the disease of addiction as a family illness, because when a loved one has an addiction problem it has a negative impact on the lives of family members and friends around them. By the time most families reach out for help, the disease has progressed to a crisis level. Quite often it is family members who suffer more than the addicted individual.

You Are Not Alone

We offer families the caring support, resources and guidance they need to help themselves and their loved one get on the road to recovery from addiction. U-Turn is a safe place where you can share your concerns, ask questions, get access to community supports, meet others who are facing a similar struggle, learn about addiction and recovery, and how to best support your loved one through addiction and recovery.

Let us help you and your family get on the road to safe recovery.

Support Groups

The Narcotics Anonymous (Nar-Anon) and Alcoholics Anonymous (Al-Anon/Alateen) Family Groups welcome family members and friends who are struggling with a loved one’s addiction. These meetings are a safe place for you to be among others who understand your problem, to share your experience, ask questions, learn from others’ experience, and receive ongoing support and hope as you travel the road to recovery.

If you would like to attend a meeting, contact us to help you find one near you.
