Meeting for family, friends, spouses are called Alanon.  Although they originally were for people whose lives were affected by a loved one who is an alcoholic, today you can go if your life is affected by any drug.  They are a huge help.  I have been to many and continue to attend.  First I am an addict, but I am also a co-dependent who needs Alanon.  I am also a child of an alcoholic, and they have meetings for those as well.  For teens, there is Alateen.

Look up Alcoholics Anonymous in your local phone book.  You can call the number listed and ask for meetings in your area for Alanon.
