Narcotics Anonymous is a nonprofit, international, community-based organization for recovering addicts, which is active in over 139 countries. Narcotics Anonymous (NA) members learn from one another how to live drug-free and recover from the effects of addiction in their lives. If you have considered recommending Narcotics Anonymous to someone who has a drug problem, you may have a few questions about our organization.
A Resource in Your Community
Anyone who wants to stop using drugs may become a member of Narcotics Anonymous. Membership is not limited to addicts using any particular drug. Those who feel they may have a problem with drugs, legal or illegal, including alcohol, are welcome in NA. Recovery in NA focuses on the problem of addiction, not on any particular drug.
