Central Indiana Area of Narcotics Anonymous

“Our gratitude speaks, when we care and when we share with others the N.A. way, that no addict seeking recovery need ever die from the horrors of addiction.”


Just For Today

Just For Today Meditation

Central Indiana Area of Narcotics Anonymous (CIANA) centers around Indianapolis and the surrounding cities of Greenwood, Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville, Zionsville, Avon, Plainfield, Lawrence, and Greenfield. CIANA currently provides support for 101 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.
