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.

Traveling the open road
|"This is our road to spiritual growth."
|Basic Text, p. 37
|When we arrived at our first NA meeting, it looked like the end of the road to many of us. We weren't going to be able to use anymore. We were spiritually bankrupt. Most of us were totally isolated and didn't think we had much to live for Little did we realize that, as we began our program of recovery, we were stepping onto a road of unlimited possibilities.
At first, just not using was tough enough. Yet, as we watched other addicts working the steps and applying those principles in their lives, we began to see that recovery was more than just not using. The lives of our NA friends had changed. They had a relationship with the God of their understanding. They were responsible members of the fellowship and of society. They had a reason to live. We began to believe these things were possible for us, too.
As we continue our recovery journey, we can get sidetracked by complacency, intolerance, or dishonesty. When we do, we need to recognize the signs quickly and get back on our path-the open road to freedom and growth.
|Just for Today: I am continuing to develop my spiritual, social, and general living skills by applying the principles of my program. I can travel as far as I wish on the open road of recovery.

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.
Area Service and PI have positions that need to be filled, and H&I needs support as well - click HERE for more information about when and where to show up to be of service.
