What is Narcotics Anonymous?

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. Members meet regularly to help each other stay clean. This program, which is adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous, is available for addicts around the world.

The 12 Steps of NA

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a nonprofit fellowship for recovering drug addicts. NA outlines a 12-step program to help members achieve and maintain abstinence from mind- and mood-altering substances. The 12 steps are:

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

NA meetings across Austin provide a supportive environment for members to share experiences, build relationships, and motivate one another toward positive change in recovery. NA aims to help addicts from all backgrounds lead more fulfilling and productive lives free from substance abuse.
