Narcotics Anonymous (NA)
global, community-based organization with a multilingual and multicultural membership.
NA was founded in 1953, and members hold nearly 67,000 meetings weekly in 139 countries today. NA is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. They 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. There are no initiation fees or dues, no pledges to sign, no promises to make to anyone. Anyone may join regardless of age, race, sexual identity, creed, religion, or lack of religion.
