Our meetings are intended to be a safe and beneficial place for all addicts. We are not concerned with what or how much you used but only what you want to do about your problem and how we can help. If you or someone you know feels you may have a problem our meetings can help. Those who keep coming to our meetings regularly stay clean

Meeting Codes

 

SUGGESTIONS TO NEWCOMERS

 

1.        Go to a lot of meetings and don't use in between. You just have to avoid the first usage.

2.        This is a 24-hour program. If you will take it one day at a time, It will be easier to stay clean. Even long-time members think of living just one day at a time, because living is just made up of a long series of todays.

3.        NA speaks for itself. Each speaker speaks for himself or herself only, not for NA as a whole.

4.        Anonymity - remember that this is an anonymous program. The names and what is said in this room stays in this room.

5.        Get a sponsor as soon as possible. Your sponsor is your NA advisor and friend. Temporary sponsors are available - ask about it after the meeting.

6.        HALT - H.A.L.T. stands for Hungry, Angry, Lonely and Tired. Avoid these conditions, especially any two of them combined. They can trigger the desire to use, when that isn't at all what you want.

7.        HOW - H.O.W. stands for Honesty, Open-mindedness and Willingness. You'll hear lots about these. It's good to concentrate on open-mindedness in the beginning, while you're listening and learning about NA. Try not to make any judgments for awhile.

8.        Change your routine. Avoid places and people you used to use with. Set up a daily schedule for yourself.

9.        Use the phone. Use phone numbers you get from NA members. Part of the recovery process is reaching out to others. We all need each other.

10.     Easy does it! Remember, you don't have to accomplish it all today. Most of us used for a long time and we can't expect to recover overnight. Keep your life simple and use your support systems. This will build a strong foundation for your recovery.
