Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a self-help organization. It's patterned after Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). NA groups are made up of people who meet regularly to help each other stop using drugs and stay drug-free.
NA has replaced the word "alcohol" with "addiction" in AA's 12 steps to reflect the disease concept of addiction. Through this 12-step program, NA provides a recovery process and support group for people who are quitting substance misuse.
