CIANA currently provides support for 99 meetings in 9 counties.
Our Basic Text, Narcotics Anonymous, provides the best description of who we are and what we do: “NA is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean.”
The Twelve Steps of NA are the basis of our recovery program. Our meetings are where we share recovery with one another, but applying our program consists of much more than simply attending NA meetings.
People have all sorts of reasons for attending NA meetings, but the purpose of each meeting is to give NA members a place to share recovery with other addicts.
How Recovery Has Improved Our Lives
* Survey completed by 22,803 NA members. The survey was made available at the 2015 World Convention of NA in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Additionally, this survey was available for members who chose to participate online and via mail and fax.

Any NA member who wants to learn more about these and other opportunities is invited to attend our next H&I subcommittee meeting. In order to be a panel member, an NA member must attend this subcommittee meeting at least once. All NA members are welcome to attend our subcommittee meeting and encouraged to get involved in carrying our message into places where the residents, patients, or inmates cannot attend regular meetings.
We are growing and need support from our fellow NA members! This is a great opportunity to be of service and carry out our primary purpose!

Just For Today
After taking the Fifth Step, many of us spend some time considering "the exact nature of our wrongs" and the part they'd played in making us who we were. What would our lives be like without, say, our arrogance?
Sure, arrogance had kept us apart from our fellows, preventing us from enjoying and learning from them. But arrogance had also served us well, propping up our ego in the face of critically low self-esteem. What advantage would be gained if our arrogance were removed, and what support would we be left with?
With arrogance gone, we would be one step closer to being restored to our proper place among others. We would become capable of appreciating their company and their wisdom and their challenges as their equals. Our support and guidance would come, if we chose, from the care offered us by our Higher Power; "low self-esteem" would cease to be an issue.
One by one, we examined our character defects this way, and found them all defective after all, that's why they're called defects. And were we entirely ready to have God remove all of them? Yes.
