I would like to share that with the rising usage of drugs in our community that there is hope for Friends and Family Members of Drug Addicts and that there is a Nar-anon Support Group that meets every Monday evening at 7:30pm at the Danville Grange on Diablo Rd. in Danville. We have just celebrated our 1 year of being here in this community and have shared our experience, strength and hope with many family and friends. Also when you come it is best to park in back of building where we meet and come in the rear entrance. See you there!
