What is Narcotics Anonymous?

Narcotics Anonymous, or NA sprang from the Alcoholics Anonymous program of the late 1940s, with meetings first emerging in the Los Angeles area of California in the early 1950s.  Today, Narcotics Anonymous is well established throughout much of the Americas, Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand. 

NA is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem.  Groups meet regularly to help each other stay clean.  Membership is open to all drug addicts, regardless of the particular drug or combination of drugs used.  NA provides a recovery process and support network linked together.  One of the keys to NA’s success is the therapeutic value of addicts working with other addicts.  Members share their successes and challenges in overcoming active addiction and living drug-free productive lives through the application of the principles contained within the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of NA.
