Narcotics Anonymous (Hope Group of Narcotics Anonymous)

Hope Group of Narcotics Anonymous meets Sunday through Friday at 7 pm in the chapel. Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a fellowship of men and women who meet regularly to help each other stay clean. All meetings are open and anyone is welcome to attend.

Members share their successes and challenges in overcoming active addiction and living drug-free, productive lives. All meetings are open and anyone is welcome to attend. The group asks that only addicts or those who think they have a problem with drugs share during the meeting.

Hope Group of NA applies of the principles within the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of NA, the core of the Narcotics Anonymous recovery program. Narcotics Anonymous itself is a non-religious program of recovery; each member is encouraged to cultivate an individual understanding—religious or not—of the spiritual principles and apply these principles to everyday life.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using drugs. People have all sorts of reasons for attending NA meetings, but the reason for each meeting is to give NA members a place to share recovery with other addicts.  …If you are an addict or think you might have a drug problem, we suggest a meeting every day for at least ninety days to get to know NA members and our program…” (excerpts from the Service Pamphlet, An Introduction to NA Meetings)  …We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean …We suggest that you keep an open mind and give yourself a break …The most important thing is that it works. (excerpts adapted from the White Booklet Narcotics Anonymous)

Membership is open to all drug addicts, regardless of the particular drug or combination of drugs used. The second tradition of NA states: “For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority—a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience. Our leaders are but trusted servants; they do not govern.”
