One of the most difficult challenges in life is trying to cope with a loved one’s struggle with alcohol and drugs. Helping Up Mission has created a support group called HUM-ANON, specifically designed for friends and family of residents enrolled in the Helping Up Mission Spiritual Recovery Program. The goal of HUM-ANON is to provide support and understanding to handle this heart-breaking situation and to provide education and insight into the world of recovery at Helping Up Mission.
WHAT IS HUM-ANON?
HUM-ANON is a twelve-step program designed to help relatives and friends of addicts recover from the effects of living with an addicted relative or friend. HUM-ANON is a group comprised of relatives and loved ones of Helping Up Mission residential program members who desire to learn more about the characteristics of addiction and how to best support their loved ones — without enabling them or doing more harm than good. HUM-ANON has but one purpose; to help families of addicts. We do this by practicing the 12 Steps of HUM-ANON, by encouraging and understanding our addicted relatives, and by welcoming and giving comfort to families of addicts.
WHO IS HUM-ANON FOR?
The only requirement for membership is the desire to learn more about the disease of addiction. HUM-ANON is for those who are experiencing the feeling of desperation caused by the destructive, addictive behavior of someone near and dear to them. HUM-ANON members meet to share their own experience, strength, and hope at meetings just as the addicts they love attend NA and AA meetings.
HOW DO I JOIN?
Just show up at the meeting. There are no dues, fees, or commitments.
