Welcome to the website of the North Central Wisconsin Area of Narcotics Anonymous. Our message is that an addict, any addict, can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live. Perhaps you're wondering if NA is for you. If you are, it may be of some help to you to read two of our informational pamphlets, "Am I an Addict?" and "Welcome to NA." If you’re an addict, NA can help. You can view times and locations of meetings here or by clicking on "meetings" at the top of the page. If you cannot attend a meeting or wish to talk to a recovering addict, please email us at PR@ncwana.org
What Is Narcotics Anonymous?
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. This is a program of complete abstinence from all drugs.
There is only one requirement for membership, the desire to stop using. We suggest that you keep an open mind and give yourself a break. Our program is a set of principles written so simply that we can follow them in our daily lives. The most important thing about them is that they work.
There are no strings attached to NA. We are not affiliated with any other organizations. We have no initiation fees or dues, no pledges to sign, no promises to make to anyone. We are not connected with any political, religious, or law enforcement groups, and are under no surveillance at any time. Anyone may join us regardless of age, race, sexual identity, creed, religion, or lack of religion.
We are not interested in what or how much you used or who your connections were, what you have done in the past, how much or how little you have, but only in what you want to do about your problem and how we can help. The newcomer is the most important person at any meeting, because we can only keep what we have by giving it away. We have learned from our group experience that those who keep coming to our meetings regularly stay clean.

Information For Professionals
Narcotics Anonymous is a global, community-based organization with a multi-lingual and multicultural membership. NA was founded in 1953, and our membership growth was minimal during our initial twenty years as an organization. Today, NA members hold more than 61,800 meetings weekly in 129 countries.
Many addicts have credited professionals for leading them to NA. We hope that we can continue to work in cooperation with the professional community so that addicts need not suffer not knowing that recovery from addiction is possible.
