Nar-Anon is a twelve-step program for friends and family members of drug addicts. Nar-Anon is complementary to, but separate from, Narcotics Anonymous (NA); Nar-Anon's traditions state that it should "always cooperate with Narcotics Anonymous." Nar-Anon was originally founded by Alma B. in Studio City, California, but her initial attempt to launch the program failed. The organization was later revived in 1968 in the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Nar-Anon filed Articles of Incorporation in 1971, and in 1986 established The Nar-Anon World Service Office (WSO) in Torrance, California.
