Where To Find A Meeting in the UK

Post by admin »

Edited Oct 5th 2020

Families Anonymous Meetings are for Families and Friends of those with a Drug or Related Behavioural Problem.

The meetings list is constantly being updated with new groups being added, existing groups changing their meeting day or venue, groups closed over holidays, etc. so it’s advisable to check with the local contacts before going to your first meeting.
Currently, a lot of the face to face meetings are suspended, due to restrictions imposed to help manage the coronavirus issue.
Many groups are holding virtual meetings via video, audio or text to link up on line.

To make contact with a local FA member before joining a meeting, please email the office at office@famanon.org.uk,
or call the helpline on 0207 498 4680. Calls to this number are normally answered daily 1-4pm and 6-9pm.
