New to NA


NA is a non-profit, non-professional fellowship of addicts helping addicts. It costs nothing to belong.  Someone new to our fellowship may call us on our helplines (listed below), or simply attend a meeting. “Open” meetings welcome non-addicts who may attend and observe. “Closed” meetings are only for those looking at their own drug problem. Call us, e-mail anyone listed under “Contact Information” below, or just walk into a meeting.  As our literature says, “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.”

For Professionals

Professionals who wish to discuss a relationship of cooperation between themselves and NA in more detail can click the e-mail link under “Contact Us” above and send us an e-mail to the choice that says “Please forward to the appropriate person.” Provide contact information, and you will be contacted by our Public Relations committee, an all-volunteer group of local members whose purpose is to forge just such relationships. More information can be found on na.org

Just For Today

Messages and messengers

"Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our traditions, ever reminding us to place principles before personalities."
Tradition Twelve

The Twelfth Tradition reminds us of the importance of putting "principles before personalities." In recovery meetings, this might be paraphrased, "don't shoot the messenger!." We often get the message confused with the messenger, and negate what someone shares at a meeting because we have personality conflicts with the person speaking.

If we are having problems with what certain people have to share at meetings, we might want to seek the guidance of our sponsor. Our sponsor can help us concentrate on what's being said rather than who's saying it. Our sponsor can also help us address the resentments that may be keeping us from acknowledging the value of some particular person's recovery experience. It is surprising how much more we can get out of meetings when we allow ourselves to do as our Twelfth Tradition suggests, focusing on recovery principles rather than personalities.

Just for Today: I will practice the principle of anonymity in today's NA meeting. I will focus on the message of recovery, not the personality of the messenger.
