What is NA?

The program is based on 12 steps that were originally defined by the found of the first twelve-step program which was Alcoholics Anonymous.
Since AA was developed in 1939, a number of other twelve-step programs have since been developed to help those who are addicted. Narcotics Anonymous meetings in Arizona are just some of the many hundreds of thousands of 12-step meetings that take place across the country every, single day.
How NA Meetings in Arizona Help
If you’re addicted and looking for a way to stay sober, NA meetings can help you fulfill your sobriety goals by offering you a support system that prevents you from turning back to your previous habits. When you need a shoulder to lean on, your sponsor will talk with you and provide guidance or just a set of listening ears.

And, if you need help with other elements of your life which may contribute to a relapse, again the NA meeting group is there for you, to help, encourage and support you in your time of need.
NA meetings in Arizona take place daily, many times throughout the day, all over the state. Large cities such as Phoenix offer many meetings each day while smaller towns may only have a once daily group in which members can come together for support. Most NA meetings last about an hour but during this time the fellowship and support that is gained can be life-changing.
