Meetings In The UK

Families Anonymous Meetings are for Families and Friends of those with a Drug or Related Behavioural Problem.

The meetings list is constantly being updated so it’s advisable to check with the local contacts before going to your first meeting.

Many groups are holding virtual meetings via video, audio or text to link up on line. Virtual meetings allow people to share information and support in real time, without being physically located together.

To make contact with a local FA member before joining a meeting, please call the office or the helpline on 0207 498 4680. Calls to this number are normally answered daily 1-4pm and 6-9pm. Local contact telephone numbers are not available on the FA website or forum, only from the helpline.
