WELCOME, WE'RE GLAD YOUR HERE!

 The Washtenaw Chapter of Families Against Narcotics is committed to helping you, those in recovery, and the families affected by addiction.

 

Our mission is to change and save lives by empowering individuals and communities through education, prevention, and support.  By partnering with area treatment and public safety professionals, the legal community, schools, and other help organizations, we are facilitating change in the way substance abuse disorder (SUD) is viewed and treated in Washtenaw County and beyond.  

 

Note:  There are two navigation bars on our site. The top bar in green will take you to statewide resources, and the navigation bar in orange is specifically for our Washtenaw County Chapter information.  

We are here to support you.

We are committed to providing our local community with tools and resources to support you, your loved ones, or those you serve on the road to recovery.

 Peer recovery coaching uses the life experience of recovery, combined with training, to assist others in starting and maintaining sobriety in a non-clinical setting. 

Family recovery coaching

Addiction is a family disease, and often times we become as sick as our loved one who is struggling with addiction. A family recovery coach can help family members find peace and regain their lives.
