AFINet Membership

The purpose of AFINet is to encourage research, practice and policy which brings family members affected by addiction out of the periphery and into the centre of our thinking about addiction across the globe.

We hope that people in many countries will find the AFINet website helpful and we also hope that a number of you will be interested enough to join us as members and help make AFINet a truly international and effective organisation.

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 completely free and the benefits include a membership forum, access to family-relevant practitioner and research materials, unpublished reports and other relevant documents which we have deposited in the membership section of the site. We hope that as membership expands, this repository of materials and documents will grow with your help.

If you are interested in becoming a member of AFINet, you can read more about it and apply for membership here.

Technical problems with membership applications

We have just discovered that the AFINet Membership application form has not been working for the last 6 months, due to a technical error. While it has been fixed now, all applications since May have been lost (we had assumed that the lack of applications was due to Covid!).

We are very sorry for this. If you have applied for membership and have not received a response, we would kindly ask you to re-complete and re-submit the form (to be found here: If you know of any colleagues or friends who have tried to join AFINet over this period, it would be very helpful if you could forward this information to them, and encourage them to re-apply.
