We admitted we were powerless over our addiction, that our lives had become unmanageable.
For those who say the program doesnt work, ask them what step they are on. Those who have never fully worked the steps, in the order they are given, generally say this. In order for the program to work for you, you must allow yourselves the chance, and give yourself over to the program, follow the suggested course, in the order it is suggested, get a sponsor, work the steps, find recovery. It may seem hard but the outcome is worth every minute you put into it. The program will only work for you if you work the program in it's entirety, give yourself a break and get from others freely what was given to them in this spiritual not religious program of recovery.
Narcotics Anonymous is a global, community-based organization with a multi-lingual and multicultural membership. NA was founded in 1953, and our membership growth was minimal during our initial twenty years as an organization. Since the publication of our Basic Text in 1983, the number of members and meetings has increased dramatically. Today, NA members hold more than 58,000 meetings weekly in 131 countries. We offer recovery from the effects of addiction through working a twelve-step program, including regular attendance at group meetings. The group atmosphere provides help from peers and offers an ongoing support network for addicts who wish to pursue and maintain a drug-free lifestyle. Our name, Narcotics Anonymous, is not meant to imply a focus on any particular drug; NA’s approach makes no distinction between drugs including alcohol. Membership is free, and we have no affiliation with any organizations outside of NA including governments, religions, law enforcement groups, or medical and psychiatric associations. Through all of our service efforts and our cooperation with others seeking to help addicts, we strive to reach a day when every addict in the world has an opportunity to experience our message of recovery in his or her own language and culture.
