Narcotics Anonymous meetings are where you can find support from others who have already been where you are now. Come along, and you'll see others getting clean & staying clean. Hopefully this will inspire you to believe you can do it too.

Come as often as you like, (it's free), as this helps build up a resistance to temptation. Then soon you'll be inspiring others to get clean too. That's how it works, we all help each other to do something we cannot do alone.

You do not need to make an appointment, just turn up to the meeting, your local meeting is run by members who were also newcomers once, so you will get a warm welcome. It doesn't even matter if you're late. Just walk in, get yourself a cup of tea, sit down & listen.

If you want to check locations where other meetings are being held or check that this meeting is definitely running, then please visit, Just type the first part of your postcode in the top box and press enter.

If the meeting is listed on the Website, then it should be running. Obviously the ukna Website & Helpline are only as good as the information they are given, but most meetings are very good at keeping them informed.

About NA

N.A. is a non-profit 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. 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. Our program is a set of principles written so simply that we can follow them in our daily lives. The most important thing about them is that THEY WORK. There are no strings attached to N.A. We are not affiliated with any other organizations, we have no initiation fees or dues, no pledges to sign, no promises to make to anyone. We are not connected with any political, religious or law enforcement groups, and are under no surveillance at any time. Anyone may join us, regardless of age, race, sexual identity, creed, religion or lack of religion.

We are not interested in what or how much you used or who your connections were, what you have done in the past, how much or how little you have, but only in what you want to do about your problem and how we can help. The newcomer is the most important person at any meeting, because we can only keep what we have by giving it away. We have learned from our group experience that those who keep coming to our meetings regularly stay clean.

Open to all addicts

Narcotics Anonymous is a completely voluntary organisation. Membership is open to anyone with a drug problem seeking help, regardless of what drug or combination of drugs have been used, and irrespective of age, sex, religion, race, creed or class. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using drugs.

Values anonymity

The basic premise of anonymity allows addicts to attend meetings without fear of legal or social repercussions.  This is an important consideration for an addict thinking about going to his first meeting.  Anonymity also supports an atmosphere of equality in meetings.  It helps insure that no individual's personality or circumstance will be considered more important than the message of recovery shared in NA.

We ask your help in maintaining our tradition of personal anonymity by not identifying our members by name or in full face photos as members of Narcotics Anonymous, or by describing details of their personal circumstances which could reveal their identities.

In carrying our message of recovery, we welcome articles about our fellowship, but not in terms of personalities.  We are not secret, just anonymous.  Cooperation by the press has been very good, and we hope that continued exposure given to the Narcotics Anonymous program will play a major role in attracting the many thousands of addicts who need help.  We thank you for your understanding.

Addicts helping addicts

Narcotics Anonymous believes one of the cornerstones of its success is the therapeutic value of addicts working with each other to achieve recovery. In meetings members regularly share their personal experiences with each other, not as professionals but as ordinary people who have discovered that sharing brings about solutions to their problems. Narcotics Anonymous has no professional therapists, no residential facilities and no clinics. NA provides no vocational, legal, financial, psychiatric or medical services.
