As addicts, we know the pain of addiction. But we also know the joy of recovery we have found in Narcotics Anonymous. Narcotics Anonymous Is a fellowship of recovering addicts who are living their lives, one day at a time, without the use of drugs. We meet regularly to help each other stay clean. It costs nothing to become a member of N.A. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using.

I can't, but we can

"From the isolation of our addiction, we find a fellowship of people with a common bond... Our faith, strength, and hope come from people sharing their recovery..."

Basic Text, p. 98

Admit no weakness, conceal all shortcomings, deny every failure, go it alone-that was the creed many of us followed. We denied that we were powerless over our addiction, that our lives had become unmanageable, despite all evidence to the contrary. Many of us would not surrender without the assurance there was something worth surrendering to. Many of us took our First Step only when we had evidence that addicts could recover in Narcotics Anonymous.

In NA, we find others who've been in the same predicament, with the same needs, who've found tools that work for them. These addicts are willing to share those tools with us and give us the emotional support we need as we learn to use them. Recovering addicts know how important the help of others can be because they've been given that help themselves. When we become a part of Narcotics Anonymous, we join a society of addicts like ourselves, a group of people who know that we help one another recover.

Just for Today: I will join in the bond of recovery. I will find the experience, strength, and hope I need in the Fellowship of Narcotics Anonymous.

A Little About Our Area

Mendocino County, California is 3,510 square miles located along over 125 miles of breathtaking coast. We are known for our giant redwood forests and magnificent Pacific Ocean coastline. The environment is well preserved; the air is fresh, and the presence of wildlife makes our area one to escape to. 
Oh yes and at the moment we have over 45 NA meetings!

Although our area is vast and contains many cities, 7 of them have meetings and we
still have a close knit fellowship with good solid recovery.

Our activities change throughout the year and include camp-outs, BBQ's, dances, picnics, bowling and bingo!
We are a member of the T.A.C. convention committee.
