Welcome to the Families of Addicts Website




Join us for support, friendship and education at our weekly meetings. All are welcome as we work to overcome addiction together.

What We Do

FOA hosts weekly meetings in several locations which consist of open discussion, speakers, friendship, and education. Families, individuals in recovery and those seeking recovery meet together. This unique approach fosters a better understanding of how addiction affects every member of the family.  Through a warm line and individual contact, FOA connects people to treatment and provides access to resources which have been thoroughly vetted. 

FOA attends many outreach and speaking events, creates awareness, and reduces the stigma. Each year, FOA holds a rally in Dayton which draws thousands of people, showcases over 60 resources, shows recovery is possible and helps reduce the stigma.
