Who Are NA Members?

"Anyone who wants to stop using drugs
may become a member of Narcotics
Anonymous. Membership is not limited to
addicts using any particular drug. Those
who feel they may have a problem with
drugs, legal or illegal, including alcohol, are
welcome in NA. Recovery in NA focuses
on the problem of addiction, not on any
particular drug.

NA Meetings

"NA’s primary approach to recovery is its
belief in the therapeutic value of one addict
helping another. Members take part in NA
meetings by talking about their experiences
and recovery from drug addiction. NA
meetings are informally structured, held in
space rented by the group, and are led by
members who take turns opening and closing the meeting. NA meetings and other services are funded entirely by member contributions. Financial contributions from non-members are not accepted.

How Does NA Work?

"Addicts helping each other recover are the
foundation of NA. Members meet regularly
to talk about their experiences in recovery.
More experienced members (known as
sponsors) work individually with newer
members. 
The core of the NA program is the Twelve Steps. These “steps” are a set of guidelines outlining a practical approach to recovery. By following these guidelines and working closely with other members, addicts learn to stop using drugs and face the challenges of daily living."
