NA Meetings in the Community
Narcotics Anonymous now holds over 1200 meetings per week throughout England, Scotland and Wales. For an up to date directory click here. An NA meeting is typically 60-90 minutes long. Members share with each other how they got clean, the benefits of staying clean and the challenges they face in their lives. The sharing can be very honest and many people who attend meetings are touched by the honesty and openness of the members. It is this sharing, in an atmosphere of recovery and participating in the lives of other members, that forms one of the cornerstones of NA recovery.
NA Meetings in Prisons
Narcotics Anonymous has been facilitating NA meetings in UK prisons since 1983. Prior to Covid we operated over 50 regular meetings in prisons. A significant number of our members first heard about NA whilst in prison. We have national and local committees whose sole focus is on facilitating meetings in prisons, rehabs and detoxes where addicts are unable to get to meetings in the community. Contact [email protected] for more details.
NA Meetings in Detoxes and Rehabs
Prior to Covid we operated numerous meetings in rehabs, detoxes and other facilities. We facilitate these meetings where addicts are unable to get to meetings in the community. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Public Awareness Presentations
Narcotics Anonymous members are often available to do presentations to professionals to make them more aware of what our organisation is about, our principles and how we can co-operate with others. We hold larger scale presentations to professionals at our conventions and other events, if you would like to be kept informed about these please complete the contact form on the contact page. We are often invited to present at healthcare and other events, if you would like to contact us about NA attending or presenting at an event please email [email protected]
Our Service Office distributes NA literature within the UK. Being self supporting we are not in a position to distribute literature for free as there are costs involved in producing it. The price charged for literature only reflects what it costs to cover purchase, storage and distribution. The office will send out our 'Basic Text' for free to individual prisoners who write in and request it, it also acts as a clearing house for correspondence in our prison inmate sponsorship project. Literature orders can be placed here.
