The 12 Steps of NA

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a nonprofit fellowship or society that offers recovery support for people struggling with drug addiction. NA outlines a 12-step program to help members achieve and maintain abstinence from mind- and mood-altering substances. The 12 steps are:

  • Step 1: We admitted we were powerless over our addiction, that our lives had become unmanageable.
  • Step 2: We came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
  • Step 3: We decided to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
  • Step 4: We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
  • Step 5: We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
  • Step 6: We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
  • Step 7: We humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
  • Step 8: We made a list of all the persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
  • Step 9: We made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when doing so would injure them or others.
  • Step 10: We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
  • Step 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.
  • Step 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.

The 12 steps aim to motivate NA members to make positive changes in their lives and help others struggling with addiction. NA chapters can be found across Pennsylvania and the entire United States.
