Newcomers & Members
What is Nar-Anon? The Nar-Anon Family Groups are a worldwide fellowship for those affected by someone else's addiction. As a Twelve-Step Program, we offer our help by sharing our experience, strength, and hope. The only requirement for membership is that there be a problem of addiction in a relative or friend. Our program of recovery uses our Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions, and Twelve Concepts.
Joining is easy - just attend a meeting (click here to find a Florida Region Nar-Anon meeting). There are no dues or fees. The only requirement for membership is that there be a problem of addiction in a relative or friend. You will hear others, who are going through similar problems, talk about how they cope and find recovery. Not sure? Read Do You Need Nar-Anon? Have questions? Nar-Anon FAQ may answer them!

* Can't attend a meeting? Some FL Region groups have set up virtual meetings. The Area 10 Eastern PA Region Nar-Anon FG has sponsored a Nar-Anon Family Groups Forum (this is provided as a courtesy to help you find others to talk to about Nar-Anon through the Internet). This is an independently moderated site, and not an official Nar-Anon forum. Please be mindful about, and remind others of the Nar-Anon Twelve Steps, Traditions, and Concepts when posting or responding to forum threads.
You may order Conference Approved Literature (CAL) online through the Nar-Anon Webstore. If you need assistance, please visit Nar-Anon Literature FAQ or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. View the Nar-Anon Literature Order Form here.

In Nar-Anon, we have found that doing service work has been helpful in our recovery. There are many ways a member may choose to help promote the growth of Nar-Anon. One way is within your own group (GSR, Secretary, Treasurer or perhaps your group as a welcome committee or outreach opportunities or simply to help set up the room or put things away after the meeting). Another way is to participate in the Region or Area committees.
The Nar-Anon Family Groups service structure is in
place to support the groups, the members, and ultimately the newcomer.
"To fulfill our fellowship's primary purpose, the Nar-Anon Family Groups
have joined together to create a structure that develops, coordinates,
and maintains services on behalf of Nar-Anon as a whole." --
Family Groups Concept One
As members and as a group, we support the service structure through our group donations and taking on service commitments at the level of area, region, and beyond. The service structure in turn provides member services such as guidelines, literature, newsletters, conventions and much more.
The Florida Region extends an open invitation for members and GSR's to participate in our committees: the Convention, Helpline, Outreach, Narateen and Website Committees. The only requirement is a desire to serve others, to bring the good news of Nar-Anon to those in need. Interested? Please Contact Us!
