The Nar-Anon Family Groups is primarily for those who know or have known a feeling of desperation concerning the addiction problem of someone very near to you.  Our program, which is not a religious one but a spiritual way of life, is based on the Twelve Steps of Nar-Anon. We've found that the working of these steps will bring the solution to practically any problem.  With the understanding that addiction is a disease, and the realization that we are powerless over it, as well as over other people's lives, we are ready to do something useful and constructive with our own. Then, and only then, can we be of any help to others.

Secular Alcoholics Anonymous

Secular A.A. is an international movement within Alcoholics Anonymous that seeks to maintain long-term sobriety regardless of a belief or lack of belief in a God. A.A atheist/agnostic/secular meetings strive to continue a tradition of free expression, where meetings are conducted so that alcoholics may feel free to express any doubts or disbeliefs they may have and to share their own personal form of spiritual experience, their search for it, or their rejection of it. In keeping with A.A tradition, we do not endorse nor oppose any kind of religion or atheism. Our only wish is to ensure that we can find sobriety in A.A without having to accept anyone else's beliefs or having to deny our own. The meeting follows a God-free adapted 12 steps of A.A. and honors the 12 Traditions of A.A. It is open to ALL those who believe they have a problem with alcoholism, regardless of their religious belief or disbelief.
