Families Against Narcotics (FAN) is a community based program for those seeking recovery, those in recovery, family members affected by addiction and community supporters. FAN seeks to change the face of addiction, dispel the stigma of addiction, and educate the community as well as those affected by addiction.

The meetings are a call to action to make a difference in our community. Addiction is misunderstood and often accompanied with shame and guilt. Our meetings encourage you to talk about this disease in an enlightened, educated way and encourages you to help us in our community effort to raise awareness and erase the stigma of addiction.

From Our Members:

The sense of isolation was destroying the health and mental outlook of all of us. The social support that FAN provides freed us to an ever increasing degree from the isolation and guilt. Thank you!

Tom, Parent

FAN brought my family and I closer together. It's a perfect place where my family and I can both get a better understanding of what each other are going through and work TOGETHER as a whole family.

P.S. - We love you Linda Davis and FAN staff. You have made a huge impact on my life. Thanks!

Mitch, Young Person in Recovery

I love supporting FAN. I feel for the family members who have lost their kids and I realized how much I hurt my family. I want to help any way that I can.

Matthew, Young Person in Recovery

We come to FAN to support our community and to give encouragement to those in recovery that there are people out there who are concerned about their welfare.

Greg & Nancy, Concerned Citizens

I am in recovery and I want to try to stop other kids from falling down the same road as me. Prevention is much better than finding out the hard way.

Justin, Young Person in Recovery

I joined FAN to try to better understand why my family became affected by narcotics and to help heal us from the loss of our son. Thank you FAN.

Dee, Parent

The first FAN meeting that I attended was absolutely incredible. It was the very first time I had seen everyone that the insidious disease of addiction affects together, in one place at the same time. And when I say together I mean it. No one was there to judge or criticize, which was different. Everyone in attendance was there to listen to, learn from, and understand the other. Quite the spectacle for a long-time addict considering there were police, judges, and other city officials in the room. It was somewhat mind blowing. The same people I used run from at all costs, I now run toward.

Being able to answer questions from parents suffering from a child's addiction, bringing understanding to law enforcement, and speaking with kids in schools brought much needed purpose to my life in early recovery. It afforded me opportunities to get outside of myself and help someone else; bringing me happiness I may not have otherwise known early on. FAN is an integral part of my life today and of great importance to me. I would encourage anyone reading this to come to a meeting. We cannot do anything for someone who is not willing to do it for themselves. However, we are there for each other through thick and thin, willing to lend a hand to pull someone up out of the depths of despair in their time of need.

Andrew, Young Person in Recovery
