If using drugs is causing problems in your life NA can help. NA exists solely so that its members can support each other to stay drug free and to help others achieve and maintain a drug free recovery and lifestyle.
Meetings are where you can find support from others who have been where you are now. Come along, no appointment necessary and you'll see others getting & staying clean. Hopefully, this will inspire you to believe you can do it too. Come as often as you like, (it's free), as this helps build up a resistance to temptation. Soon you might be inspiring others to get clean too. That's how it works, we all help each other to do something we had been unable to do alone.
You don’t have to say anything at a meeting if you don’t want to, nor do you have to be drug free to attend, this is important as they are the main reasons given for not coming, Just show up, you'll be made welcome, the people running the meeting were new once. We found it's a good idea to try and focus on the similarities rather than the differences in what is being said.

There are three types of meetings 'Open to All', 'Open by Request' and 'Addicts Only' the latter are only for addicts or those who think they may have a problem with drugs. 'Open to All' meetings are open to anyone to attend, including family members or friends , Check the meetings page which specifies what each meeting is. If there are no 'Open to All' or 'Open by Request' ' meetings in your local area please go along anyway and ask one of those organising it if they can ask the group to make it 'Open' so your friend or family member can attend.
