What is the Narcotics Anonymous Program?

NA is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean. This is a program of complete abstinence from all drugs. There is only one requirement for membership, the desire to stop using.We suggest that you keep an open mind and give yourself a break. Our program is a set of principles written so simply that we can follow them in our daily lives. The most important thing about them is that they work.

Who is an addict?

Most of us do not have to think twice about this question.We know! Our whole life and thinking was centered in drugs in one form or another—the getting and using and finding ways and means to get more.

We are people in the grip of a continuing and progressive illness whose ends are always the same:  jails, institutions, and death.

Why Are We Here?

We had to have something different and we thought we had found it in drugs. We placed their use ahead of the welfare of our families, our wives, husbands, and our children. We had to have drugs at all costs. We did many people great harm but most of all we harmed ourselves. Through our inability to accept personal responsibilities we were actually creating our own problems. We seemed to be incapable off acing life on its own terms.
