New to NA?


We're glad you're here. Freedom from addiction is possible with the help of other recovering addicts in Narcotics Anonymous. If you're not sure that you are an addict, don't worry. Just keep coming back to our meetings.

Our message is simple. We have found a way to live without using drugs, and we are happy to share that solution with anyone who thinks they may have a drug problem.

Beginner's Meeting

Do you think you might have a problem with drugs? Unsure where to start? New to NA? Do you have questions about NA? Join us for a 30-minute introduction to Narcotics Anonymous. We will go over the basics of how it works and answer all of your questions.

An Introduction to NA Meetings


One of the first suggestions many of us hear when we begin attending NA meetings is to get a sponsor. As a newcomer, you may not understand what this means. What is a sponsor? How do we get and use one? Where do we find one? Check out the pamphlet below for a brief introduction to sponsorship.


I still have questions. Can I talk to an NA member?

Our volunteers are ready to respond to you. You can contact us via email or call us toll-free below.
