Coronavirus Statement: Due to the changing circumstances around COVID-19, some NA meetings are in person, and some remain virtual. We are keeping the website as up to date and accurate as possible, but circumstances change frequently. Check back regularly for the latest information. If a meeting is noted as “NOT CONFIRMED,” it means that we have no information on whether they are meeting in person or not. Be prepared with a backup plan. We provide information about in-person meetings and our Area Office hours of operation as a convenience; however, the Central Ohio Area Service Committee of NA cannot verify the measures taken by individual groups or the Area Office as to how they address the pandemic and various national, state, local, or facility mandates.

Narcotics Anonymous offers a program of recovery from active drug addiction. Our simple message is that an addict, any addict, can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live. Our message is hope and the promise of freedom from active addiction. There are no dues or fees for membership; anyone may join us; the only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using drugs.
Narcotics Anonymous is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean. This is a program of complete abstinence from all drugs. There is only one requirement for membership, the desire to stop using. We suggest that you keep an open mind and give yourself a break. Our program is a set of principles written so simply that we can follow them in our daily lives. The most important thing about them is that they work.
There are no strings attached to NA. We are not affiliated with any other organizations, we have no initiation fees or dues, no pledges to sign, no promises to make to anyone. We are not connected with any political, religious, or law enforcement groups, and are under no surveillance at any time. Anyone may join us, regardless of age, race, sexual identity, creed, religion or lack of religion.
We are not interested in what or how much you used or who your connections were, what you have done in the past, how much or how little you have, but only in what you want to do about your problem and how we can help.
