Welcome to EKASC of  NA

This is a program of complete abstinence from all drugs. There is only one requirement for membership, the desire to stop using. We suggest that you keep an open mind and give yourself a break. If you have a substance abuse problem and are wondering how Narcotics Anonymous can help, then come to an NA meeting and find out.

To attend an NA meeting you first need to find one. If you do not have access to a printed EKASC Meeting Schedule, then use the online meeting schedule or call our Helpline at 1-888-811-3887.

Once you find a meeting, go inside, introduce yourself (if you want to), and give yourself a break!

While Narcotics Anonymous does provide help in the form of personal recovery, it does not provide intervention, detoxification or rehabilitation services. Nor does NA provide medical opinions or counseling. Those requiring medical attention are strongly urged to seek treatment from trained medical professionals in a clinical setting.

Information for the Treatment Community

The EKASC Public Relations Subcommittee places particular importance on raising the level of awareness of Narcotics Anonymous within the treatment community. Many recovering addicts have credited members of that community with introducing them to Narcotics Anonymous. Through a cooperative relationship, NA is able to complement the efforts of the treatment community in helping the addict recover.

Presentations

The primary method used to introduce Narcotics Anonymous to interested organizations is a Presentation. A Presentation consists of a panel of experienced NA members who meet with the interested party to share NA's approach to recovery, including how meetings are organized and the framework of our Traditions.

For more information or to schedule a presentation, call our Helpline at 888-811-3887. When prompted, select Essex-Kent Area, wait on the line for a member to discuss to your needs. You may also contact the PR Subcommittee via email from the Contact EKASC page.

Informational Packets and EKASC Meeting Schedules

Informational Packets are available to interested organizations upon request. Informational Packets contain a selection of Narcotics Literature as well as a EKASC Meeting Schedule. Packets of printed EKASC Meeting Schedules are also available upon request.

To request either an Informational Packet or a packet of printed EKASC Meeting Schedules, call our Helpline at 888-811-3887.

Online Learning Resources

Narcotics Anonymous World Services has published a selection of NA Recovery Literature online. As well, NAWS has posted an article entitled Information About Narcotics Anonymous.

About Public Relations

The purpose of a Narcotics Anonymous Public Relations Committee (or subcommittee) is to inform the public that NA exists and offers recovery from the disease of addiction. This is accomplished by ensuring that information about our fellowship is accurate and is available to the public.

Information for Professionals

Narcotics Anonymous, an international, community-based association of recovering drug addicts, provides peer support to other addicts who desire a drug-free outcome. We strive to cooperate with professionals such as therapeutic communities and other organizations with similar goals.

Narcotics Anonymous is one of the world's oldest and largest associations of recovering drug addicts. The NA approach to recovery from drug addiction is completely nonprofessional, relying on peer support. We believe the NA program works as well as it does primarily because of the therapeutic value of addicts helping other addicts. It is an ideal aftercare support network for clients who wish to pursue and maintain a drug free outcome no matter where in the world where they live.
