As our Nation is in the midst of an epidemic of drug addiction, the addict’s family and friends are also victims as their lives are encompassed with the question of “What To Do?” As there are recovery programs for the Addicts, there is also a program for the families and friends as well. The Nar-Anon Family Groups are a worldwide non-profit organization with a program designed for those who have known a feeling of desperation concerning the addiction problem of a loved one. When you join a Nar-Anon Family group, you are no longer alone, but among true friends who understand your problem as few others could.
We are fortunate to have a Nar-Anon Family group in Thousand Oaks, CA. It meets every Thursday evening at 7:30 to 9:00 pm at Temple Adat Elohim, 2420 E. Hillcrest Drive, Room 9. There are no dues or fees. Not only will you find comfort being with people who will share their own experience, strength and hope, but there is literature that will help guide you in this journey with addiction. There is also a new Spanish Speaking Nar-Anon Meeting in room 13 (upstairs) at the same time 7:30 pm Thursday at Temple Adat Elohim. There are no professionals or experts in our meetings, only other members who have struggled with the addiction problem of someone they love. All members are treated with respect, confidence and anonymity. What you hear stays within the walls of the meeting rooms
