Nar-Anon Family Groups

     Similar to Alanon, Nar-Anon is for the families and friends of narcotic addicts. In the Nar-Anon program, we learned that drug addiction is a disease that we are not responsible for. The drug user needs help and so do we. We discovered many of our efforts to control or change the situation were often actually enabling or encouraging this person to continue a self-destructive pattern. It has been a great relief to learn more effective ways of coping with this situation, while at the same time gaining some peace of mind, hope, and help for a better way to live.

Started in 1947, the NA movement is one of the world's oldest and largest of its type, with nearly twenty thousand weekly meetings in seventy countries.

Rational Recovery Systems

     In Rational Recovery ®, the family has an entirely different role than in the traditional disease/treatment way of thinking. One popular idea is that families should gather together with other troubled families, seeking outside guidance and advice. One good example of this approach is Al-Anon, which views addiction/alcoholism as a family disease, and views family members as “enablers” and “codependents.” Like all addiction recovery groups, Al-Anon uses a doctrine that fosters endless dependence upon the groups, with the primary aim of simply recruiting the entire family into AA/NA.

  • Address: P.O. Box 800, Lotus, CA 95651

Self-Mutilators Anonymous (SMA)

   Meetings are Mondays at 5:30 pm at The Turning Point - 22 Elm Street, Oneonta, NY.

   SMA is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other, that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from self-harm/self-injury.

   By physical self-mutilation, we mean deliberately causing injury to our bodies without the intention of ending our lives.

   (This includes cutting or burning ourselves, tearing out body hair, scratching until blood is drawn, reopening wounds, banging our heads, breaking bones or teeth, tearing or severely biting cuticles or nails, swallowing objects, compulsive tattooing or body piercing, excessive cosmetic surgeries, acne mutilation, chewing the inside of our mouths, etc...)

   For more information call Arianna at (607) 376-3300.
