what is service?
Service work is carrying the message to the addict who still suffers. There are many different ways that we can be of service in NA. Some members volunteer on the phoneline, sharing a message of hope with struggling addicts, their family members, and professionals. Some members share their experience, strength and hope on speaker panels, carrying the NA message into jails, treatment centers, and other institutions. There are many ways to be of service at many different levels. As we stay clean and work the Twelve Steps, we come to find our niche in service. Being of service is one of the ways in which we practice our Twelfth Step. It's also a way of expressing our gratitude for the program of Narcotics Anonymous.
What is the na message?
The NA message is that an addict, any addict, can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live. When all is said and done, our primary purpose can only be to carry the message to the addict who still suffers because that is all we have to give.
How do i start giving back?
Service usually starts at the “homegroup” level. A homegroup is a particular NA Group that you commit to attending on a regular basis. A homegroup provides many opportunities for you to involve yourself in the NA Fellowship, making it a great place to start giving back. Members often start by showing up early to help set up, or staying after the meeting to help clean up.
"In committing to our homegroup, we make a personal commitment to NA unity. That commitment not only enhances our own recovery, it helps ensure recovery is available for others. Our home group also gives us a place in which to participate in NA’s decision-making processes."
