From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nar-Anon is a twelve-step program for friends and family members of drug addicts. Nar-Anon is complementary to, but separate from, Narcotics Anonymous (NA); Nar-Anon's traditions state that it should "always cooperate with Narcotics Anonymous." Nar-Anon was originally founded by Alma B. in Studio City, California, but her initial attempt failed. The organization was later revived in 1968 in the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Nar-Anon filed Articles of Incorporation in 1971, and in 1986 established The Nar-Anon World Service Office (WSO) in Torrance, California.[1]
