Other Ways to Find Your Way to Recovery.
« on: March 17, 2012, 01:22:26 AM »
1. Talk to someone who can help you.  If you cannot talk to an NA member, try talking with a counselor, pastor/priest, or agency/non-profit organization in your community that helps people in difficult times. They often have resources available, such as a contact person in recovery to put you in touch with, meeting schedules, other information about addiction/recovery, and most of all, a listening ear.  Talking about it is a huge first step.

2. Call a treatment center.  Ask them if they have meetings at their facility, and if they are open to the public.  If the facility offers meetings, usually at least some of them will be open, so that family members of their clients can attend. Even if they don't offer meetings or their meetings are closed to the public, they may be able to point you in the right directions for meetings.

3. Look up Narcotics Anonymous in the phone book.  If there is no NA in your area, do not give up!  Many of us have attended AA as a starting place due to having limited or no access to NA.  Getting started is the main thing.  If you would like to discuss this further with us, respond here or join our chat room at
