Our Purpose

“Each group has but one primary purpose—to carry the message [of recovery through NA] to the addict who still suffers.” *

"We cannot change the nature of the addict or addiction. We CAN help to change the old lie “Once an addict, always an addict,” by striving to make recovery more available." **

"What is our message? The message is that an addict, any addict, can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live. Our message is hope and the promise of freedom. When all is said and done, our primary purpose can only be to carry the message to the addict who still suffers because that is all we have to give." **
