Narcotics Anonmymous is a nonprofit, international, community-based organization for recovering addicts which is active in over 144 countries. Narcotics Anonymous (NA) members learn from one another how to live drug-free and recover from the effects of addiction in their lives. The NA program is founded in the Twelve Steps and focuses on addiction as a "physical, mental and spiritual disease that affects every area of our lives."
