ADDICTION IS A DISEASE--NOT A MORAL FAILING
More than 100 million Americans--
roughly one third of the population--are shattered by a loved one's addiction.
Children. Parents. Siblings.
Grandparents. Spouses. Aunts. Uncles.
Whether you are here to
• give or get support,
• learn the latest evidence-based
• find out how you can help to
"change the system,"
you are in the right place!
By providing trained recovery coaches and peer support and harnessing the enormous power of these families, Change Addiction Now (C.A.N.) aims to change the way addiction is treated, perceived, and legislated, and champion 21st Century research in the studies of brain, addiction, and the impact it all has on families.
PLEASE JOIN US!
Family members who accept that addiction is a disease are better able
to let go of the inevitable anger, shame and blame that comes with the territory.
Their loved one is not doing it "to" them, but rather the nature of this brain disease makes it impossible for them not to break promises, lie, cheat, steal and hurt those whom they love the most, UNTIL they stop their drug or alcohol use and effectively treat their disease.
