FOR NEWCOMERS

NA is a nonprofit 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.


→ Is NA for me?: This is a question every potential member must answer for themselves.


→ What to expect at an NA meeting: If you’re planning to go to a Narcotics Anonymous meeting for the first time, it might be nice to know what to expect.


→ For the Newcomer: Helpful information for those new to Narcotics Anonymous.


→ Who, What, How, and Why: Basic information about the who, what, how, and why of Narcotics Anonymous.


→ How Do I Get a Sponsor: NA relies on the “therapeutic value of one addict helping another.” A sponsor is an experienced member who offers guidance and support through the Twelve Steps.


→ For Those in Treatment: In this pamphlet, we offer some suggestions and a basic plan of action to help recovering addicts in the transition from treatment, to continuing recovery in Narcotics Anonymous.


→ By Young Addicts, For Young Addicts: This pamphlet was developed by young members of Narcotics Anonymous to illustrate the fact that young addicts around the world, speaking many different languages, are getting and staying clean in NA.
