Narcotics Anonymous is a non-profit fellowship of people who suffer from the disease of addiction. We are a global communitiy-
based organization offering recovery from the effects of addiction through working a twelve-step program including regular
attendance at group meetings. The group atmosphere provides help from peers and offers an ongoing support network for addicts
who wish to pursue and maintain a drug-free lifestyle. We meet on a regular basis to help each other stay clean and share our
experience, strength, and hope.
Our name, Narcotics Anonymous, is not meant to imply a focus on any particular drug; NA’s approach makes no distinction between
drugs including alcohol. Membership is free, and we have no affiliation with any organizations outside of NA including governments,
religions, law enforcement groups, or medical and psychiatric associations.
If you think you might have a drug problem, please call one of the Area Helplines, or come to one of our meetings. If you are a
professional seeking more information, please visit the NA World Services Resources for Professionals web page.
