Who We Are

Founded in 2007, Families Against Narcotics is a grass roots organization based in Macomb County, Michigan. Since that first town hall meeting, FAN has held monthly meetings in that same church basement. A safe place where people can face and learn about addiction from others who have had similar experiences. Hundreds have walked through those doors over the past few years, including families affected by addiction; concerned citizens; law enforcement; judges; health care professionals; leaders in education, business, and religion; and people in recovery.

We work tirelessly, educating young adults, parents, school personnel, law enforcement, judges, and most of all doctors and other health care professionals of the dangers of prescription drug abuse, especially painkillers. FAN offers over 34 monthly support meetings across the state and we currently have 22 chapters in Michigan and we launched our first out of state chapter in Madison North Carolina in the fall of 2017.
