Don’t let somebody else’s drug or alcohol use or abuse control your LIFE.
FA’s philosophy begins with the premise that when one family member is in trouble and abusing drugs or alcohol, his or her whole family is in trouble and needs help.
Guided by the principles of the FA program, family members and friends learn how to find relief from their seemingly insurmountable burdens. They become able to enjoy some peace of mind and a degree of serenity, despite unsolved problems. They discover, too, that as they themselves change, so do the dynamics of their family; this often sets the stage for their addicted loved one’s recovery.
FAMILIES ANONYMOUS: FA is not drug, alcohol, or behavior specific. Members focus on themselves— on their recovery from codependency and on changing any of their attitudes and behaviors (e.g., denial, enabling, rescuing, controlling, manipulating, and a whole range of other crippling actions and emotions) that prevent their own recovery and that of their addicted loved ones.
