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.


Central Indiana Area of Narcotics Anonymous (CIANA) centers around Indianapolis and the surrounding cities of Avon, Brownsburg, Camby, Carmel, Cicero, Clermont, Danville, Fishers, Franklin, Greenfield, Greenwood, Martinsville, Noblesville, Plainfield, Rushville, Shelbyville, Whiteland, Zionsville. 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

Family Relationships
Social Connection
Stable Housing
Education Advancement

* 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.

Just For Today

January 29, 2023
The First Step - an action step
Page 29
"Do we understand that we have no real control over drugs?"
Basic Text, p. 18

At first, many of us may have thought the First Step required no action-we just surrender and go on to Step Two. But Step One does require action!

The action we take in the First Step will be evident in the way we live, even from our first day clean. If we truly believe that we are powerless over our addiction, we will not choose to be around drugs. To continue to live with or associate with practicing addicts may indicate a reservation in our program. An absolute belief that the First Step applies to us will insure that we clear our homes of all drugs and paraphernalia.

As time goes on, we'll not only continue with the basics but add new actions to our First Step repertoire. We'll learn to feel our feelings rather than trying to control them. We'll stop trying to be our own and only guides on our recovery journey; self-sponsorship will cease. We'll begin looking to a Power greater than ourselves more and more for spiritual satisfaction rather than trying to fill that void with something else.

Surrender is only the beginning. Once we surrender, we need to learn how to live in the peace we have found.

Just for Today: I will take all the action necessary to practice the First Step. I truly believe it applies to me.
