NA Narcotics Anonymous Australia
NA is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean. This is a program of complete abstinence from all drugs. There is only one requirement for membership, the desire to stop using. Anyone may join us regardless of age, race, sexual identity, creed, religion, or lack of religion. The newcomer is the most important person at any meeting, because we can only keep what we have by giving it away. We have learned from our group experience that those who keep coming to our meetings regularly stay clean. For more information on how NA can help you please contact NA today!
