The Narcotics Anonymous Program

Group of diverse hands in a circleThe Twelve Steps of Narcotics Anonymous, as adapted from A.A., are the basis of our recovery program. We have only broadened their perspective. We follow the same path with a single exception; our identification as addicts is all-inclusive with respect to any mood-changing, mind-altering substance. Alcoholism is too limited a term for us; our problem is not a specific substance, it is a disease called addiction. We believe that as a fellowship, we have been guided by a Greater Consciousness, and are grateful for the direction that has enabled us to build upon a proven program of recovery.

The only requirement for membership is “a desire to stop using,” and members “meet regularly to help each other stay clean,” where “clean” is defined as complete abstinence from all mood and mind altering substances (including alcohol). Membership in N.A. is free, and there are no dues or fees. The foundation of the Narcotics Anonymous program is the twelve steps and twelve traditions.

Narcotics Anonymous “has no opinion on outside issues,” including those of religion, politics, science, or  medicine, and does not endorse or oppose any outside organization or institution. The fellowship does not promote itself, but rather attracts new members through public information and outreach. N.A. groups and areas supply outside organizations with factual information regarding the N.A. program, and individual members may carry the N.A. message to hospitals and institutions, such as treatment centers and jails.

N.A. Meetings

Regular meetings, hosted by N.A. groups, are the basic unit of the N.A. Fellowship. Meetings are held virtually online as well as physical locations such as church meeting rooms, libraries, hospitals, community centers, parks, or any other place that can accommodate a meeting. Please refer to our meeting page for the most up to date meeting information.

Meeting Formats

There are two basic types of meetings, “open” and “closed”. Anyone is welcome to attend an open meeting, while closed meetings are limited to addicts and to people who think they may have a problem with drugs.
