Welcome to our New Home
To add events to the calendar you will have to register as an authorized member of this site. This process should be painless but it is necessary to keep the spammers off the calendar and eventually as the site is developed any authorized members will have more capabilities. Uploading regional and maybe area minutes for your areas, there will be a lot of things that in the future you will be able to do. As with anything it will be a process. Eventually it will be these authorized members that will create all of the content on this site; "By Addicts, For Addicts." You may register (from the link at the bottom of the page) now to have the ability to add an event to the calendar. For the moment there will be a vetting process until the we know that the anti-spam software is working properly. Please be patient as this site is a process of development.
We are looking for moderators that will look for spammers, the more the site grows, the more eyes we will need to help with this job. Basically, you would be a part of the Website committee. These positions would not have to know much about editing websites. Just Willingness and Commitment to the job. There would probably have to be some training in the way that one could edit the site. You know what to do if a spammer got through our spam protection. Spammers are like us addicts very persistent. Anyway let me know if anyone is interested and maybe we can have some kind of discussion online or something. Let me know.
Who is an Addict?
Most of us do not have to think twice about this question. We know! Our whole life and thinking was centered in drugs in one form or another—the getting and using and finding ways and means to get more. We lived to use and used to live. Very simply, an addict is a man or woman whose life is controlled by drugs. We are people in the grip of a continuing and progressive illness whose ends are always the same: jails, institutions, and death.
What is the Narcotics Anonymous program?
NA is a nonprofit 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 NA. 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.
