What is NA?
NA (Narcotics Anonymous) is a globally renowned non-profit fellowship for people whose drug abuse has had a detrimental impact upon their lives. Everyone attending NA meetings is trying to abstain from drug use and to develop a new way of life. There are no fees to attend and everyone is welcome as long as they are actively striving to stay clean.
What is AA?
AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) is – like NA – a non-profit fellowship; since its inception in the 1930s AA has helped millions of people worldwide escape from the claws of alcoholism. AA meetings are held right across the country, including a good number in Cambridgeshire, and may be particularly valuable for people who have already gone through rehab and are seeking ongoing support.
