Families Against Narcotics

Posted By: Brie (June 20, 2019)
“An integral part of FAN's mission is to remove the stigma associated with addiction through education and to inform the community of the growing problem of substance dependency or addiction among all ages, and the increasing use of heroin by our young people.
​
Over the past few years, we have presented our Real People Sharing Real Stories to thousands of students in over three dozen school districts, spoke at over 50 conferences and traveled to more than 30 communities from Grosse Ile to Petoskey to share our stories. Our unique presentation style includes parents affected by addiction, parents who have lost loved ones and young people in recovery.

FAN also provides education through professional and guest speakers, as well as the sharing of personal stories. FAN creates a support network for those affected by addiction so no family or individual need suffer alone.“
