WASHTENAW FAMILIES AGAINST NARCOTICS

A community-based program, Washtenaw FAN seeks 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 Use Disorder (SUD) is viewed and treated in Washtenaw County and beyond.
