Westman Families of Addicts was born out of one Mother’s recognized need for support dealing with the trauma of the addiction crisis within families. What she thought would begin as a small coffee group soon turned into a support group with over 200 families! Supporting one another turned into advocacy, resources, sharing, and fighting for the supports sorely needed for families. Additionally, our support extends to the mentally ill substance abusers in our community and province. Our main goals aside from support are; education, awareness, and reducing stigma in order to create a healthier and safer community. We can be found online and at our monthly community meetings where we celebrate success, find solutions to hurdles and educate ourselves. This is all done in a judgement free, safe zone of families and friends.
