Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a fellowship similar to Alcoholics Anonymous, founded in 1953 in Los Angeles. Ever since its start, it has spread to over 129 countries. It provides support to not only alcoholics but people recovering from any drug addiction.
The membership of Narcotics Anonymous is open to everyone regardless of race, religion, age, gender, and substance they are addicted to. The only condition is the will to overcome the addiction. Narcotics anonymous societies accept people addicted to any substance, including alcohol. People with polysubstance dependence are also welcomed.
Deciding to join a support group like NA requires courage. People have many reservations regarding the first meeting.
The fact is, members of such support groups are incredibly supportive. They have been through similar and they know exactly how you feel. You do not necessarily have to say anything during your first meeting if you do not feel like it. You can hear other members discuss their problems.

You are required to admit that you have a problem and become determined to overcome that problem and undo the damage it has caused to you and your loved ones.
During the process, you seek help from a power higher than yourself. But it is not specified what the higher power can be. It can be different for different people. People can replace higher power with God, whatever helps them feel better. Different treatments work for different people. It is important to find out the one that works for you.
