Learn More About NA Meetings in California
Throughout California, NA meetings regularly take place and provide a safe, informative and inviting environment in which those in recovery are welcomed to come together for strength and healing. Residents of all major cities in California, including major counties like Riverside, beachside towns like San Francisco and rural neighborhoods throughout the state NA meetings are offered to assist those who are addicted to a wide range of substances including heroin, prescription drugs, alcohol and methamphetamine.
Are NA Meetings for Everyone?
Traditions in NA generally state that those who would like to be involved with the group must either be sober or want to be sober. NA equally cooperates with those who are not suffering from addiction but who can help to impact those suffering from addiction. This includes members of the clergy, police and law enforcement officers, doctors, court staff and judges as well as voluntary organizations who work to place those suffering from addiction into proper treatment programs for adequate help.
If you don’t want to get sober, are not ready to get sober or do not wish to take part in a group recovery experience, then NA may not be the right choice for you.
In California, NA Meetings are the first step many addicts take towards getting sober. In fact, these programs and meetings that take place throughout the state are often the only method of treatment that an addict will receive because he or she simply cannot afford other options. Studies show that:
- Slightly more than half of NA members are men.
- Nearly 70% of NA members are aged 41 or older.
- Over 75% of NA members are Caucasian despite the lack of restrictions preventing members of other ethnicities getting involved in NA groups.
- Slightly more than half of all NA members are employed full-time while others are retired, students, homemakers or unemployed or under-employed.
How NA Helps
Have you ever felt like you want to stay sober, like you wish you didn’t use drugs, but when you felt like you couldn’t say no there was nobody for you to call for support? NA meetings in California connect you with your own personal sponsor and an entire group of people who are ready to support you during your time of need. So, when you are out with friends and face peer pressure that triggers you to think about using or when you can’t sleep at night because drugs are on your mind, you can contact your sponsor or another member of your NA group and get immediate support that will help you to remain sober.
Members report improved quality of life in the areas of family relationships, social connections and stable housing as a result of their involvement in NA and the support that they receive while they are part of a Narcotics Anonymous group. California NA meetings help those in recovery to repair the damage and destruction in their lives and restore a sense of safety, comfort and sober living in a situation that otherwise may have resulted in dire consequences.
Many long term drug abusers avoid getting help because they’re afraid to suffer the mental, physical and emotional trauma of the withdrawal process—but there’s no need to fear. When detoxification is monitored by trained, clinical professionals, problems are minimized and comfort is maximized. Now is the best time rid your body of addictive substances once and for all.
After detoxification, you can move on to getting treatment with a clearer mind and stronger body. Rehabilitation structures your life around breaking free of addiction. Group, family, and individual therapy can uncover and address any co-occurring mental health issues that may be contributing to your addiction.
Being honest about yourself is the key to long-lasting recovery. Ongoing attendance at 12-step meetings is a great way to maintain sobriety by helping you continue to work on issues and build a support network to see you through hard times, so you can continue to live a happier, healthier, more fulfilled life.
