FOA rebuilds families and transforms lives through the 3 E’s; educate, empower and embrace. Through weekly meetings in various Ohio counties, navigation, one-on-one phone support and outreach opportunities, FOA is a sought after and respected resource in the Miami Valley. FOA is unique because we provide support for the entire family and advocate for individuals to find their face and voice, which is key to eliminating the stigma associated with addiction.


The organization currently provides programming that includes weekly support meetings in various counties that welcome both loved ones and those seeking or in long-term recovery to come together for support, friendship and education. They also have made progress in eliminating the stigma of addiction by holding three successful rallies and encouraging members of the community to be the face and voice for those still suffering as wells those having success, family and recovery alike. FOA plans to continue growing and fighting for individuals and families affected by addiction
