There is Hope

Hope – Families with Addicts is a support group based in Hewitt, NJ for the family members and friends of those suffering from the disease of alcohol and/or drug addiction.  While we are not professional counselors, each of us has been personally impacted by having a loved one with this disease.

The message is: you are not alone.

We come with shame, guilt, anger, confusion, frustration, and hopelessness. The goal is that, over time, we all find a way to cope with our circumstances and learn to live again – life that will again permit us to live comfortably in spite of our loved one’s addiction.

Addiction is a family disease that impacts the lives of every member of the family. The hope is that in listening and sharing at these meetings, we learn how to stop being part of the problem and become part of the solution.  Anyone having a suspicion that a loved one or friend may have a substance abuse problem is encouraged to attend, even if there is only a suspicion of a problem.

Hope is a safe haven. Anonymity is paramount to the success of the program. Everyone attending is known only by their first names.

This group gathers resources from a variety of respected sources, including Families Anonymous, The National Center for Christian Recovery, the Fuller Institute for Recovery, Lighthouse and others.

When you attend a meeting, you will no longer feel alone.

You have nothing to lose but your pain and anger.

If you know or even suspect that a loved one may be addicted to or abusing drugs and/or alcohol, please call 888-773-9938, email us at, or fill out the information below and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
