This is a question every potential member must answer for themselves. It may help to read some of our informational pamphlets, starting with “Am I an addict?” and “Welcome to NA”.
If you’re an addict, NA can help. “Narcotics Anonymous offers recovery to addicts around the world. We focus on the disease of addiction rather than any particular drug. Our message is broad enough to attract addicts from any social class or nationality. When new members come to meetings, our sole interest is in their desire for freedom from active addiction and how we can be of help.” (It Works: How and Why, “Third Tradition”)
If you’re planning to attend your first meeting, you may also be interested in the Service Pamphlet, “An Introduction to NA Meetings.” Either way, stick around for a minute and give yourself a break. We’re glad you’re here and we hope that we can help.
