ONLINE MEETINGS

Our meetings are now held exclusively online at the above times after Governor Newsom's Shelter-in-Place order on March 16th, 2020.

We are hopeful that our in-person meetings will resume in the future, but the Hope Lutheran meetings are closed until further notice.

Newcomer Meetings

The newcomer meetings are a series of six topic-based meetings where you will have the opportunity to ask questions about how Nar-Anon works. We recommend attending all six newcomer meetings.

Some of the topics discussed in newcomer meetings include “How to deal with stress,” “Detaching with Love,” and “Sponsorship.”

Have you ever...

  • Covered up for the addict?

  • Made excuses for the addict?

  • Paid the addict’s bills, rent, or utilities?

  • Felt hopeless because of the addict’s choices?

  • Isolated yourself from others because you don’t want them to know what is going on in your life?

  • Felt ashamed by the behavior of the addict?

  • Felt alone?

If you relate to any of these issues, you can find help in the fellowship of Nar-Anon.

About us

What is Nar-Anon?

The Family Group is for those who know or have known a feeling of desperation due to the addiction of someone close to them. Nar-Anon members meet to share their experience, strength, and hope at weekly meetings.

Whether the addict is using or not, Nar-Anon offers hope and recovery to all people affected by the addiction of a loved one. This means that our open meetings welcome anyone who feels they would benefit from attending. You are not required to speak at a meeting if you do not feel comfortable doing so.


We meet to...

  • Give unconditional support to the family or friend of an addict.

  • Share our experience, strength, and hope.

  • Learn to focus on ourselves and not on the addict.

  • Learn about drug abuse as an illness.

  • Help regain our self-confidence.
