Written by members, our literature offers identification and a message of hope to the still-suffering addict. Recovery literature is an invaluable source of help for members, potential members, and those who want to help addicts.
The NA program is a way of life which is based in the Twelve Steps. The steps offer members an avenue for growth and change to maintain their recovery. We learn how to apply these steps to our lives by reading NA literature and going to meetings.
The collective experience of NA members can be heard in our literature, illustrating how we live life on life’s terms. Over the years NA has changed, our literature has expanded and been revised, but the message remains the same: An addict, any addict, can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live.
The Steps is HOW the Program of NA Works and the Traditions is WHY the Program of NA Work. Our book called “It Works & Why” proves that point. The Twelve Concepts are guidelines in all aspects of Narcotics Anonymous Services that is linked with the 12 Traditions.
The Twelve Traditions are also linked to the Public and it shows in the 7 of 12 traditions that relate directly to public affairs. They are:
Traditions 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 & 11.
