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
* 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
Surrender may be the necessary foundation for recovery, but sometimes we fight it. Most of us look back after some clean time and wonder why on earth we fought so hard to deny our powerlessness when surrender is what finally saved our lives.
As we recover, new opportunities to surrender present themselves. We can either struggle with everyone and everything we encounter or we can recall the benefits of our first surrender and stop fighting.
Most of the pain we experience comes from fighting, not surrendering. In fact, when we surrender, the pain ends and hope takes its place. We begin to believe that all will be well and, after some time, realize that our lives are much better as a result. We feel the same way we did when we gave up the illusion that we could control our using - relieved, free, and filled with fresh hope.
