For Professionals

Introduction:
We frequently provide information about Narcotics Anonymous to local professionals in the community. Since your organization may interact with people with drug problems, we believe it is important for you to be aware of Narcotics Anonymous as a community resource. Please feel free to refer people with drug problems to our meetings or pass information about our program to those who may benefit from it. We hope you find the following information helpful.

NA is a member-driven, international organization in which no dues or fees are charged for membership. All we ask is for a potential member to have a desire to stop using drugs. Members recover from the disease of addiction by application of the principles contained in the Twelve Steps. Our program is based on a set of spiritual principles, and we have no affiliation with any organized religion.

Narcotics Anonymous is a twelve-step approach to recovery with the primary purpose of helping any individual stop using drugs. NA’s program focuses on an addict’s recovery from the disease of addiction, rather than any specific drug. Through our group meetings and the therapeutic value of one addict helping another, addicts learn how to live drug-free and productive lives.

For Facilities
The Public Relations Committee for Contra Costa Narcotics Anonymous can provide professionals at your facility with an overview of our program and how it can benefit your clients. We can provide educational presentations in schools, at rehabilitation facilities, and within the justice system. Please don't hesitate to talk to one of our volunteers by calling the number above and requesting more information.

We have free meeting schedules and informational pamphlets for use by professionals and their clients which can be made available at your facility. If you need literature for your facility please call 925-685-4357 and leave a message in box 86. A volunteer will call you back.

For Schools
Schools located within Contra Costa County can request a presentation for their students through the PR committee as well. As above, call 925-685-4357 and leave a message in box 86, or email admin@contracostana.org. We'll discuss the presentation with you and set up and appointment which we can tailor to your school schedule.
