It's AL A NON. Their website is http://www.al-anon.alateen.org/
It's a wonderful resource for the addict's family for them to meet people who have gone through the same things they have, to listen to their stories, to learn to live their lives whether the addict in their lives is using or not and to be able to learn about the disease of addiction and how to help themselves as well as the addict.
There is a spot that us transcriptionists go to when we need to find the spelling of a doctor's name, etc. Wait, this would just be good in Texas. It is called "Texas Medical Association" and most doctors in the state are members of this. They are listed by speciality and by city. You can use the search option once you have gotten into the web site. I assume maybe all states have this, so whatever state you are in you might try looking up on the internet, for example "Georgia Medical Association". Then, there is a spot called "find a physician" and you click on that. I am sure there are many ways of finding what you are looking for on the internet, I am going to be looking for an addiction specialist myself this week, I truly think that will be the best thing for me and he or she can advise me as to be best course of action for my particular situation. Good luck, please let me know if you find someone.
