for the Public
Here, for general
information on our program which is posted on the
NA World Services website.
NA: Where to Begin...
N.A. is a
non-profit, non-professional fellowship of addicts
helping addicts. It costs nothing to belong. Anyone
who feels they may have a problem with drugs is
welcome, regardless of the drug. Someone new to our fellowship may call us
on our helplines (listed under "Area Pages" above),
or simply attend a meeting (listed under "Meeting
Locator" above). "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. We were all new to this once too, so we
know how that feels, and will welcome you with
respect. 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."
Referring Someone to
As stated immediately above, anyone may simply walk into an NA meeting and begin listening to the sharing, so giving clients a list of meetings from our search engine above and having them try a meeting is always a simple option. They should be encouraged to identify themselves as new when given that option, so NA members can introduce themselves and offer their support. They may also call one of our local help lines. For a list of those numbers, click "Area Pages" above, and then click the map for your referral's location. Phone numbers are listed there.
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" below and send 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.
