Drug Abuse Back to Patient Support Group list
Narcotics Anonymous NA


Narcotics Anonymous is an international, community-based association of recovering drug addicts with more than 31,000 weekly meetings in over 100 countries worldwide.

NA's earliest self-titled pamphlet, known among members as "the White Booklet," describes Narcotics Anonymous this way:

"NA is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We … meet regularly to help each other stay clean. ... We are not interested in what or how much you used ... but only in what you want to do about your problem and how we can help."

NA operates from the ground up. There are no leaders and every member, no matter how long they have being attending meetings, has an equal say in the fellowship. Each group is autonomous and decides for itself how it conducts meetings within the NA Traditions.

All groups must be self-supporting and a voluntary collection is held at the end of meetings to pay for rent, coffee, etc. Group decisions are made by holding a business meeting called a 'group conscience' on a regular basis.
