The Daytop Family Association is run by family members for family members. You need not have a child, spouse, sibling or friend in the program to be a member of the Family Association. It is open to anyone experiencing the effects of someone else’s substance use.

Personal Experience

There is a particular kind of anxiety that comes as a result of caring about someone with a drug problem. As soon as you walk into a Family Association room, it is evident that you can talk about it here. Everyone knows what you mean in a way that comes only with personal experience. Family and friends cannot help but be affected by the substance abuse of an individual. The Daytop Family Association offers support to allow people to heal, develop self-awareness, become empowered and grow.
