Use the NA Helpline and/or Meeting Locator Link from NA.org
« on: March 16, 2012, 08:51:10 PM »
This information is from the na.org website.  There are two ways to find help or a meeting where you are:

1. Local NA Phonelines and Websites - This option helps you find websites and local helpline numbers.  You can find information on local websites or call the phone line associated with it.  By calling the phone line in your area, you can talk with an actual member of NA.  This is our first and best recommendation for finding an NA meeting:

When you go to http://www.naws.org/meetingsearch/index.php, you will click on either USA/Canada or World Search. If you click on USA/Canada, you will be prompted to choose either area code or state.  No matter which you choose, you will end up with results that include website AND phone numbers to call for the local helplines.  Entering your area code might narrow things down a bit, making it easier for you to find the information you need.  If you click on World Search, you will be prompted to enter your country or province, and will get the same sorts of results, websites and local helplines for different areas in that country. 

NOTE: If you are hesitant to call because of fears that a stranger will then have your phone number, please know that the phone lines are general lines registered to groups, not personal phone numbers.  Those in service answering the helpline are members of NA who wish to do service by helping those who call in. 

2. NA Meeting Search - This option allows you to view all of the current meetings in your area.  NA.org works diligently to keep information up to date, but occasionally meetings times change, move locations, or close, and there could be a delay in updating the meeting list, as NA.org waits on updates from groups before making such changes.  This is an excellent resource overall, and if you would like to utilize it:

Click on http://www.naws.org/meetingsearch/index.php and fill out the information that is requested.  When you submit your info, you will see the current meeting schedule for your area.
