Narcotics Anonymous is an international, community-based association of recovering drug addicts. Started 1947, the NA movement is one of the world’s oldest and largest of its type, with nearly twenty thousand weekly meetings in seventy countries. The core of the Narcotics Anonymous recovery program is a series of personal activities know as the Twelve Steps adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous. These “steps” include admitting there is a problem, seeking help, self-appraisal, confidential self-disclosure, making amends where harm has been done, and working with other drug addicts who want to recover.
