Public Message from the Rio Grande Region of Narcotics Anonymous
Regarding Coronavirus/Covid-19

In order to comply with state and local emergency orders nearly all NA meetings have temporarily ceased in-person meetings and have begun meeting online to comply with social distancing guidelines. While this is not ideal, we are finding online meetings to still be a vibrant face-to-face connection experience. Online NA meetings are now available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition, there are many phoneline meetings. We are still carrying the message of recovery and just as eager to make our message available to the still suffering addict as ever.

How to find us online

Most meetings are using Zoom, although NA does not endorse or have any opinion on Zoom. The meeting lists on this website provide the ID for the online meeting. For instruction on using Zoom click here Note that you can call into most of these meetings with any phone and hear the meeting.

Our Region has meetings listed in the website below under the “Meetings” tab:

A complete list of national and international Zoom and call-in meetings is available on-line at:

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

August 15, 2020
Over time, not overnight
Page 237
"We found that we do not recover physically, mentally, or spiritually overnight."
Basic Text, p. 28

Have you ever approached a recovery celebration with the feeling that you should be further along in your recovery than you are? Maybe you have listened to newcomers sharing in meetings, members with much less clean time, and thought, "But I'm just barely beginning to understand what they're talking about!"

It's odd that we should come into recovery thinking that we will feel wonderful right away or no longer have any difficulty handling life's twists and turns. We expect our physical problems to correct themselves, our thinking to become rational, and a fully developed spiritual life to manifest itself overnight. We forget that we spent years abusing our bodies, numbing our minds, and suppressing our awareness of a Higher Power. We cannot undo the damage in a day. We can, however, apply the next step, go to the next meeting, help the next newcomer. We heal and recover bit by bit-not overnight, but over time.

Just for Today: My body will heal a little, my mind will become a little clearer, and my relationship with my Higher Power will strengthen.
