Families Anonymous groups meet in communities throughout the United States and in more than a dozen other countries. We welcome you to our meetings which are held in-person and virtually. When you attend, you may choose to participate in the group discussions, or you may just sit and listen. First names only are used so to preserve the anonymity of all, and no dues or fees are required.
To find a meeting located near you or to attend a virtual meeting held on a convenient day and time, please select from the following options:
Email Group (E-Meeting)
The E-Meeting is an email (LISTSERV styled) discussion group. It is the largest and most active group in the fellowship consisting of more than 700 members. It is available to the members 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week. Members of the group hail from all over the world and share their Experience, Strength and Hope by typing their message to the list. The E-Meeting averages more than 2000 email messages per month.
Anyone wishing to subscribe to the E-Meeting should do so by sending a “blank” email (nothing in the subject line and nothing in the body of the email) to: [email protected]
You will receive a confirmation email from the server that you must “reply” to without any changes or additions.
Important Note: many members choose to open a separate email account to keep this email separate from their private email. There are many free accounts you can open for this service.
If you have any questions regarding our E-Meeting, you may contact the group via email ([email protected])
FA is truly a worldwide fellowship. FA has member groups in more than 14 countries outside the U.S. While differences in language and customs exist, the FA program is the same regardless of location.
International Groups will often form Intergroups, and collaborate with the World Service Board to develop translations of FA recovery literature for local use.
International groups, Intergroups and National Service Boards operate in accordance with the World Service Board International Policy, which can be found below.
