What is Narcotics Anonymous?

Narcotics Anonymous is a non-profit, community-based organization for recovering addicts that is currently active in over 60 countries. NA members learn from one another how to live drug free and recover from the effects of addiction in their lives.

Think you might have a problem?

If you think you have a problem with drugs of any kind, please come to one of our meetings! This simple act can be the start of a new life free from the constant pain of addiction. Narcotics Anonymous can help you find freedom to live your life without the use of drugs.

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 to stay clean. There are no dues or fees. The only requirement for membership is the desire to stop using.

You don’t have to be clean when you get here, but after your first meeting we suggest that you keep coming back and come clean. You don’t have to wait for an overdose or jail sentence to get help from NA, nor is addiction a hopeless condition from which there is no recovery. It is possible to overcome the desire to use drugs with the help of the Twelve Step program of Narcotics Anonymous and the fellowship of recovering addicts.
