The Co-Anon Family Groups have but one purpose - to help the family members and friends of someone who is addicted to cocaine or other mind-altering substances.
Co-Anon Family Groups carries out their purpose by practicing the Twelve Steps of Cocaine Anonymous themselves, by understanding addiction and carrying the message of hope and personal recovery whether the addict is using or not. It is through the fellowship that they learn to cope with their difficulties by sharing their experience, strength, and hope with others.
