Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is an international, community-based support group. It helps people who are recovering from drug addiction. NA is a self-help organization patterned after
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). NA has replaced the word "alcohol" with "addiction" in AA's 12 steps
to reflect the disease concept of addiction. Through this 12-step program, NA
provides a recovery process and support group for people who are trying to quit using
substances. It holds more than 31,000 weekly meetings in more than 100 countries worldwide. NA groups are made up of people who meet regularly
to help each other stop using drugs and to stay drug-free.
Meetings are available in most communities at various times. Contact NA or check your local phone book for meeting dates and times, or go to www.na.org.
