N.A. is a non-profit 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 stay clean. This
is a program of complete abstinence from all drugs. There is only one requirement for membership,
the desire to stop using. We suggest that you keep an open mind and give yourself a break. Our
Program is a set of principles written so simply that we can follow them in our daily lives.
The most important thing about them is that they work.
There are no strings attached to N.A. We are not affiliated with any other
organizations, we have no initiation fees or dues no pledges to sign, no promises to make to
anyone. We are not connected with any political, religious or law enforcement groups and are under
no surveillance at any time. Anyone may join us regardless of age, race, sexual identity, creed
religion or lack of religion.
We are not interested in what or how much you used or who your connections were, what
you have done in the past, how much or how little you have, but only in what you want to do about
your problem and how we can help. The newcomer is the most important person at any meeting, because
we can only keep what we have by giving it away. We have learned from our group experience that
those who keep coming to our meetings regularly stay clean.
