Narcotics Anonymous

Narcotics Anonymous is a non-profit society of men and women for whom drugs have become a major problem. We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean. Membership is open to anyone, regardless of what drug or combination of drugs have been used, and irrespective of age, sex, religion, race, creed or class. Anyone with a drug problem seeking help.

Our NA meetings are where you can find support from others who have already been where you are now. Come along, no appointment necessary, and you'll see others getting clean & staying clean. Hopefully this will inspire you to believe you can do it too. Come as often as you like. There are NA meetings across Suffolk, held in Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket, Sudbury, Lowestoft and Mildenhall. Please visit our website for further information and to find your nearest meeting or contact Narcotics Anonymous.

Anyone from the using addict, their friends and family members through to drug workers and the press are welcome to call our helpline (0300 999 1212).

Our team have all been through the mill themselves as recovering addicts so we can understand exactly how you feel.

Notes

Q: I'm still using, can I attend?
A: 
Yes, come along. That's how many of us got clean - through regular attendance, the courage to quit grew within us.  

Q: Can I just turn up at NA meetings?
A: Absolutely; it's very laid back. Your local meeting is run by members who were also newcomers once, so you will get a warm welcome. It doesn't even matter if you're late. Just walk in, get yourself a cup of tea, sit down & listen.

Q: Is NA religious?
A: No, not at all. The word god is mentioned in the readings, but it's really a nick-name for anything that you choose as your higher power. One needs a higher power to help in the process of Recovery. A lot of non-religious members choose the group.

Q: I am addicted to prescription drugs. Do I still qualify?
A: Yes, it's not a specific drug which defines addicts, it's whether we have an addictive personality. If you want to stop, but cannot on your own, you qualify.

Q: What does "Open to all" mean?
A: "Open to all" meetings welcome everyone, so you could bring a friend with you, but if attending, they should identify themselves as such, and should refrain from speaking. 

Q: What is a topic meeting?
A: Some meetings have a speaker who tells their story, but others choose a reading from the literature on a particular topic

Q: Is there a contact numbers for meetings?
A: Not all meetings provide a contact number, and due to data protection, we're no longer allowed to publish these on the website. You do not need to call in advance. Just come along; you will receive a warm welcome.

Q: Can I find out about meetings on this website?

Q: What about more detailed information? like certain languages? or meetings with a creche?
