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.
Central Indiana Area Helpline
Just For Today
In Narcotics Anonymous, we've found that the more we live in harmony with our Higher Power's will for us, the greater the harmony in our lives. We use the Tenth Step to help us maintain that harmony. On a daily basis, we take time to look at our behavior. Some of us measure each action with a very simple question: "God's will, or mine?"
In many cases, we find that our actions have been in tune with our Higher Power's will for us, and we in turn have been in tune with the world around us. In some cases, however, we will discover inconsistencies between our behavior and our values. We've been acting on our own will, not God's, and the result has been dissonance in our lives.
When we discover such inconsistencies, we admit we've been wrong and take corrective action. With greater awareness of what we believe God's will for us to be in such situations, we are less likely to repeat those actions. And we are more likely to live in greater concord with our Higher Power's will for us and with the world around us.
