The 12 Steps of NA

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a recovery program that helps members stop using drugs and find meaning and purpose in life. NA outlines a 12-step process to guide members on their recovery journey:

  1. We admitted we were powerless over our addiction, that our lives had become unmanageable. This first step asks members to acknowledge they have lost control over their drug use.
  2. We came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. Step 2 encourages members to open themselves to faith and spirituality.
  3. We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him. Members commit to letting their higher power guide their recovery.
  4. We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. Step 4 has members reflect deeply and honestly on their behaviors and character defects.
  5. We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. For step 5, members confess their shortcomings out loud to another person.
  6. We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. Members become willing to let go of their character flaws with their higher power’s help.
  7. We humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings. In step 7, members actively pray and meditate to relinquish their defects.
  8. We made a list of all the persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all. Members take accountability and prepare to make amends in step 8.
  9. We made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when doing so would injure them or others. For step 9, members right their wrongs with others if it’s helpful and safe.
  10. We continued to take personal inventory, and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it. Step 10 asks members to regularly self-reflect and admit mistakes.
  11. We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out. Through step 11, members strengthen their spiritual connection.
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to addicts and to practice these principles in all our affairs. Step 12 calls on members to help others in recovery and live by the principles.

The 12 steps aim to motivate NA members toward positive change for recovery from drug addiction across Ohio, the United States, and the world. NA offers support for lifelong recovery one day at a time.
