The 12 Steps of NA

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a nonprofit fellowship for recovering drug addicts. Its approach involves working through 12 steps to achieve and maintain sobriety. The 12 steps are:

  1. Admit powerlessness over addiction and that lives have become unmanageable.
  2. Come to believe a Power greater than oneself can restore sanity.
  3. Make a decision to turn will and lives over to the care of God as understood.
  4. Make a searching and fearless moral inventory of selves.
  5. Admit to God, ourselves, and another human the exact nature of wrongs.
  6. Become entirely ready to have God remove all defects of character.
  7. Humbly ask God to remove shortcomings.
  8. Make a list of all persons harmed and become willing to make amends.
  9. Make direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when doing so would injure them or others.
  10. Continue to take personal inventory and promptly admit when wrong.
  11. Seek through prayer and meditation to improve conscious contact with God as understood, praying only for knowledge of God’s will and the power to carry that out.
  12. Carry a message to other addicts and practice these principles in all affairs.
