Come to a meeting!
At meetings you will be able to connect with other addicts who can help. If you go to the page that says Find A Meeting you can find meetings by day, location, or time.
Call our phoneline!
You can call our phoneline 24 hours a day and speak with one of our members.
If you call 1-888-463-2117 and listen to the menu, it will give you the option to speak to a recovering addict. They can share their experience with you about recovery in NA and answer any questions you may have.
Read our literature!
We also have free recovery literature available on the Literature page. You will find several pamphlets and booklets that can give you more information about recovery in NA.
Keep coming back!
“You don’t have to be clean when you get here, but after your first meeting we suggest that you keep coming back and come clean. You don’t have to wait for an overdose or jail sentence to get help from NA, nor is addiction a hopeless condition from which there is no recovery. It is possible to overcome the desire to use drugs with the help of the Twelve Step program of Narcotics Anonymous and the fellowship of recovering addicts.
We suggest that you look for a sponsor as soon as you become acquainted with the members in your area. Being asked to sponsor a new member is a privilege so don’t hesitate to ask someone. Sponsorship is a rewarding experience for both; we are all here to help and be helped. We who are recovering must share with you what we have learned in order to maintain our growth in the NA program and our ability to function without drugs.
This program offers hope. All you have to bring with you is the desire to stop using and the willingness to try this new way of life.
Come to meetings, listen with an open mind, ask questions, get phone numbers and use them. Stay clean just for today.”
