How to Start an NA Meeting

Starting an NA meeting can be relatively easy. NA meetings may vary greatly in structure and format, however, there is always one constant: They are started so that the NA message of recovery can be carried to the still-suffering addict in the most effective way– addict to addict.

These resources are available to help you start a new NA meeting:
