Narcotics Anonymous Helps Men and Women Find Freedom from Addiction

Narcotics Anonymous does not “treat” addiction nor is it a harm reduction program focused on saving lives. “NA is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean”

While I understand that Gaiani would like to give addicts drugs as the solution to taking drugs, NA is focused on recovery from addiction. Taking methadone or other opiates may reduce some of the harmful consequences of buying street drugs however it is not recovery from addiction. It’s just a different addiction.

While NA will not support the desire of pharma companies to sell more addictive drugs we will be here to help anyone who desires freedom from addiction.
