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

Narcotics Anonymous is a global, community-based organization with a
multi-lingual and multicultural membership. NA was founded in 1953, and our
membership growth was minimal during our initial twenty years as an
organization. Since the publication of our Basic Text in 1983, the number of
members and meetings has increased dramatically. Today, NA members hold more than
58,000 meetings weekly in 131 countries. We offer recovery from the effects of
addiction through working a twelve-step program, including regular attendance
at group meetings. The group atmosphere provides help from peers and offers an
ongoing support network for addicts who wish to pursue and maintain a drug-free
lifestyle. Our name, Narcotics Anonymous, is not meant to imply a focus on any
particular drug; NA’s approach makes no distinction between drugs including
alcohol. Membership is free, and we have no affiliation with any organizations
outside of NA including governments, religions, law enforcement groups, or
medical and psychiatric associations. Through all of our service efforts and
our cooperation with others seeking to help addicts, we strive to reach a day
when every addict in the world has an opportunity to experience our message of
recovery in his or her own language and culture.
God, grant us the...
Serenity to accept the things we cannot change,
Courage to change the things we can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference
Patience for the things that take time
Appreciation for all that we have, and
Tolerance for those with different struggles
Freedom to live beyond the limitations of our past
Ability to feel your love for us and our love for
each other and the
Strength to get up and try again even when we feel
it is hopeless.
