The Family of An Addict

Narcotics Anonymous does not directly provide services for the family of an addict in recovery.

On this page we list resources for those family members wishing to receive assistance and support for themselves or for their loved one.

NA does not endorse or is affiliated with any of the organizations listed below.  We provide these resources in the spirit of cooperation and goodwill within the community:

  • 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. We have traveled that unhappy road too, and found the answer with serenity and peace of mind.”
  • Al-Anon is “a worldwide fellowship of those who feel their lives have been deeply affected by someone else’s drinking. The only requirement for membership is that there be a problem of alcoholism in a relative or friend. Members, who come from all walks of life, meet to share their experience, strength and hope in order to solve their common problems.”
  • Aloha United Way has an information and referral service serving the islands of Hawaii. You may call their hotline by dialing 211 (or use the link provided). They provide contact information to services such as crisis intervention, economic and housing assistance, medical clinics, food shelves, volunteer activities, educational and recreational programs and support groups.
  • Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division, State of Hawaii Health Department  (ADAD) is the “primary and often sole source of public funds for substance abuse treatment. ADAD’s treatment efforts are designed to promote a statewide culturally appropriate, comprehensive system of services to meet the treatment and recovery needs of individuals and families. Treatment services have, as a requirement, priority admission for pregnant women and injection drug users.”
