Marijuana Anonymous in Oregon with MA meetings in Portland, Tigard, Salem, Bend, and Ashland:

If you find it difficult to control your marijuana use, if you think about using marijuana even when you are not, or if you have broken promises to yourself or others about limiting or stopping your use -- you may be a marijuana addict. Only you can decide.

The following questions may help you determine whether marijuana is a problem in your life.
1. Has smoking pot stopped being fun?
2. Do you ever get high alone?
3. Is it hard for you to imagine a life without marijuana?
4. Do you find that your friends are determined by your marijuana use?
5. Do you use marijuana to avoid dealing with your problems?
6. Do you smoke pot to cope with your feelings?
7. Does your marijuana use let you live in a privately defined world?
8. Have you ever failed to keep promises you made about cutting down or controlling your use of marijuana?
9. Has your use of marijuana caused problems with memory, concentration, or motivation?
10. When your stash is nearly empty, do you feel anxious or worried about how to get more?
11. Do you plan your life around your marijuana use?
12. Have friends or relatives ever complained that your using is damaging your relationship with them?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may have a problem with marijuana.

If you have a desire to stop using marijuana, you're in the right place. To get started, take a look at the Marijuana Anonymous info "For The Newcomer". Come to one of our free MA meetings in Portland, Tigard, Salem, Bend, or Ashland.

Marijuana Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share our experience, strength, and hope with each other that we may solve our common problem and help others to recover from marijuana addiction. Our primary purpose is to stay free of marijuana and to help the marijuana addict who still suffers achieve the same freedom. We can do this by practicing our suggested Twelve Steps of recovery and by being guided as a group by our Twelve Traditions. Marijuana Anonymous uses the basic 12 Steps of Recovery founded by Alcoholics Anonymous because it has been proven that the 12 Step Recovery program works!

MA District 11 Safety Statement

In accordance with the principles of our program we want to create an environment of safety for all members.  We encourage each person here to contribute to fostering a secure and welcoming environment in which our meeting can take place.  As our traditions remind us, the formation and operation of an MA group resides within the group conscience.  Therefore, we ask group members to refrain from any behavior which might compromise another’s safety and recovery.  We caution members from getting involved with newcomers in matters of romance or business.

For concerns or to report safety incidents, please email: safety@madistrict11.org

Mar-Anon website for support and hope for those affected by another's marijuana use

Mar-Anon is a 12-Step program designed specifically for those who are affected by another's marijuana use. Mar-Anon is based on the 12 steps of AA and Al-Anon - steps that have helped to improve the lives of millions of people over many years, people of all faiths or none. We are not a religious group, instead the steps are a path of self-discovery and personal change. The 12 steps here have been adapted for the Mar-Anon program.
