Seeking a meeting for support?

by Brenda

I am seeking a Al-Anon meeting to attend to support a person whose husband is abusing prescription drugs.

Dear Brenda,

Attending Al-anon meetings and working the 12 steps will teach you quite a bit about addiction so you can hopefully learn the best way to help your friend whose husband is opiate addicted.

Opiate addiction (pain pill addiction) is a disease of the brain and, sadly, is fatal more than 50% of the time. The more you friend learns about addiction the better she will be at loving her husband but hating his addiction.

To find meetings do an internet search on "Al-anon meetings" with the name of your city. Then visit a few different meetings until you find a few meetings that you like and are comfortable with. Then invite your friend to go with you so she can also begin to work the steps, find a sponsor, and learn about his addiction.

It's wonderful that you are walking with her and helping her to fight for her husband's life!

Good Luck,

Debbie
