The Addiction and the Family International Network promotes, through research, practice and policy, the well-being of family members, friends and colleagues who are affected by, and/or concerned about another person’s addiction. We would like to encourage members who are already engaged in cross-country collaboration in the field of addiction and family, or who are interested in such collaboration, or who are seeking help and advice from those who've been working in that field in other countries.

Membership is free and the benefits include access to all resources and the majority of 5-Step Method resources, reduced fees for AFINet conferences and access to all members to share experiences and ideas.

To be a member of AFINet you should:

  • Have an active interest in research, practice or policy regarding the effects on family members and family life of excessive alcohol or drug use, gambling, or other addictive behaviour.
  • Already be engaged in international collaboration in that area of work.
  • Or be actively considering such collaboration.
  • Or be seeking support or collaboration in that area of work from those in better resourced countries.
  • All members should be in broad agreement with the aims of AFINet.
