Overcoming addiction, one meeting at a time
As most people have heard of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), many are probably aware that AA meetings are held in communities throughout Carver County. Unfortunately, alcohol is not the only vice challenging area citizens.
It’s worth asking, how aware are citizens regarding local chapters of Narcotics Anonymous (NA)?
For the record, several NA groups meet in the area, offering help, support, and hope to those battling addiction, an affliction that has no cure and often creates daily struggles for those within its grasp. In western Carver County, NA holds three regular group meetings:
Traditions Book Input: Tradition One
Narcotics Anonymous is creating a new book on the Traditions. The Introduction and Tradition One are now available for your review and input.
We want this book to be useful for the broad spectrum that NA encompasses: from newcomers to members with decades of experience and cleantime, and from newly emerging NA communities to those that have been established and thriving for long periods of time. As always with literature development, the earlier we get your input, the better.
Read the draft of the Introduction and Tradition One.
A 15-20 minute format for input can be discussed in your home group or with your sponsor.
The full-length session is a 60 to 90 minutes.
For all the session profiles and additional information on the Traditions Book, go to www.na.org/traditions.
Be a PenPal Sponsor for NA Members in Prison
Many NA members behind the walls are asking for sponsors. Help them work the Twelve Steps of Narcotics Anonymous by writing letters back and forth. Your contact information will be kept completely confidential because your sponsee will send his/her letters to a PO Box and then the letter will be forwarded to you.
