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:

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

Sick and tired
Page 160
"We wanted an easy way out...When we did seek help, we were only looking for the absence of pain."
Basic Text, p.5

Something's not working. In fact, something's been wrong for a long time, causing us pain and complicating our lives. The problem is that, at any given moment, it always appears easier to continuing bearing the pain of our defects than to submit to the total upheaval involved in changing the way we live. We may long to be free of pain, but only rarely are we willing to do what's truly necessary to remove the source of pain from our lives.

Most of didn't begin seeking recovery from addiction until we were "sick and tired of being tired and sick." The same is true of the lingering character defects we've carried through our lives. Only when we can't bear our shortcomings one moment longer, only when we know that the pain of change can't be as bad as the pain we're in today, are most of us willing to try something different.

Thankfully, the steps are always there, no matter what we're sick and tired of. The irony is that, as soon as we make the decision to begin the Twelve Step process, we realize our fears of change were groundless. The steps offer a gentle program of change, one step at a time. No single step is so frightening that we can't work it, by itself. As we apply the steps to our lives, we experience a change that frees us.

Just for Today: No matter what prevents me from living a full, happy life, I know the program can help me change, a step at a time. I need not be afraid of the Twelve Steps.
