Family & Friends


Addictions Foundation of Manitoba (AFM)
When someone is struggling with drugs, alcohol, or problem gambling, that person’s family and loved ones are affected too. Whether you’ve lived with addiction yourself or experienced it in your family growing up. AFM’s Family Program is here for you. We can support you to explore how a history with addiction impacts your life today and how you can move forward.

Al-Anon and Alateen Family Groups, Manitoba and Northwest Ontario
The Al-anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope in order to solve their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness and that changed attitudes can aid recovery.

Behavioural Health Foundation (BHF)
Offers both residential and non-residential support to individuals affected by a family member’s addiction and co-occurring mental health issues.  The emphasis of the support is on promoting healthy living, coping and adapting to change.
