"NA is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem."


The Narcotics Anonymous message is “that an addict, any addict, can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use and find a new way to live.” Please join us for a meeting.


 

Have you ever wondered? Am I an Addict?

This may not be an easy thing to ask. All through our usage, we told ourselves, “I can handle it.” Even if this was true in the beginning, it is not so now. The drugs handled us. We lived to use and used to live. Very simply, an addict is a person whose life is controlled by drugs. Perhaps you admit you have a problem with drugs, but you don’t consider yourself an addict. All of us have preconceived ideas about what an addict is. There is nothing shameful about being an addict once you begin to take positive action. If you can identify with our problems, you may be able to identify with our solution. . .

 

Welcome to Narcotics Anonymous!

NA offers addicts a way to live drug-free. If you are not sure you’re an addict, don’t worry about it; just come to our meetings. You will have all the time you need to make up your own mind. If you are like many of us when we attended our first NA meeting, you may be feeling pretty nervous. Many of us have felt the same way. We often say that no one comes through the doors of NA by mistake. (Non-addicted people don’t spend their time wondering if they’re addicts.) They don’t even think about it. If you’re wondering whether or not you’re an addict, you might be one. Just allow yourself the time to listen to us share about what it has been like for us. Perhaps you will hear something that sounds familiar to you. It doesn’t matter whether or not you have used the same drugs others mention. It is not important which drugs you used; you’re welcome here if you want to stop using. Most addicts experience very similar feelings, and it is in focusing on our similarities, rather than our differences, that we are helpful to one another. You may be feeling hopeless and afraid. It is a relief to discover that the only requirement for membership in NA is a desire to stop using. So, welcome! We are glad you have made it this far.

 You will find our meeting schedule on the page labeled "schedule" and our HOTLINE is always available to give great directions to the closest meeting 503-990-0861
