Short description:
The Mission of the NA World Services, Inc. is to provide services and support which facilitate the continuation and growth of Narcotics Anonymous (NA) worldwide. NA is a multilingual, multicultural organization with approximately 50,000 meetings held each week in over 65 languages in 130 countries worldwide.
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.
