This is a question we have to answer for ourselves, if you think you might have a problem, but are unsure if you are an addict, one of the best ways you can decide for yourself is to attend one of our meetings. There are NA meetings both online and in person, please check out our meetings page.
Attending an NA meeting could be one of the best decisions you ever make !
There are no waiting lists in NA , just turn up
If you want to talk to someone first feel free to call our helpline on 0300 999 1212, it's open 10am- midnight daily and will be answered by a NA member.
We have a pamphlet called 'Am I an Addict?' which might help you decide.
What about Prescription Drugs?
it's not a specific drug which defines addicts, it's whether we have an addictive personality. If you want to stop, but cannot stay stopped on your own, try our meetings.
Worried about fitting in?
In NA we are not concerned about what drugs you may have used, what you have done in the past or what your personal status might be, we are only interested in what you want to do to about your problem and how we can help. Sometimes people come to our meetings thinking they are different and won't fit in, but on attending meetings and hearing others talk about their experiences they generally realise how similar these are to their own.
