Basic Purpose and Goals of the Outreach Committee

The purpose of this subcommittee is to reach out to the isolated or struggling groups within our area and to act as a communication link between that group and the Area Service Committee (ASC). The goal of these efforts is intended to provide support and assist groups to learn how to help themselves.

Any member of Narcotics Anonymous may attend the subcommittee meetings and become a member of the subcommittee. The area outreach subcommittee encourages member support. A subcommittee member travels to the groups as a representative of the Outreach Committee and/or the ASC. An acting “subcommittee representative shall have six months suggested clean time. It is suggested that “subcommittee representatives” never work alone.
