DRUG PROBLEM? If you want to stop we can help!
Narcotics Anonymous is a non-profit fellowship of men and women for whom drugs have become a major problem. We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other live drug-free. It costs nothing to attend a Meeting. There are no dues or fees; the only requirement for membership is the desire to stop using. This is a program of complete abstinence from all drugs, which includes alcohol. Our fellowship focuses on recovery from the disease of addiction. What an individuals drug(s) of choice were, is not important. Anyone may join us regardless of age, race, sexual identity, creed, religion or lack of religion.
We suggest that you call our 24 HOUR HELPLINE at 407-425-5157 or 866-579-8333, the Florida Relay for the Deaf at 800-955-8771, or attend one of our local Meetings. If you have questions about if you are an addict, please read information pamphlet: IP #7 “Am I an addict?”.
What is the Narcotics Anonymous Program?
NA is a nonprofit Fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We are recovering addicts that 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. We suggest that you keep an open mind and give yourself a break. Our program is a set of principles written so simply that we can follow them in our daily lives. The most important thing about them is that they work.
There are no strings attached to NA. We are not affiliated with any other organizations, we have no initiation fees or dues, no pledges to sign, no promises to make to anyone. We are not connected with any political, religious or law enforcement groups, and are under no surveillance at any time. Anyone may join us, regardless of age, race, sexual identity, creed, religion or lack of religion.
We are not interested in what or how much you used or who your connections were what you have done in the past, how much or how little you have, but only in what you want to do about your problem and how we can help. 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. (Basic Text page 9)

We Do Recover
When at the end of the road we find that we no longer function as a human being, either with or without drugs, we all face the same dilemma. What is there left to do? There seems to be this alternative: either go on as best we can to the bitter ends – jails, institutions or death – or find a new way to live. In years gone by, very few addicts ever had this last choice. Those who are addicted today are more fortunate. For the first time in man’s entire history, a simple way has been proving itself in the lives of many addicts. It is available to us all. This is a simple spiritual – not religious – program, known as Narcotics Anonymous.
