Welcome to the Palm Coast NA website
NA 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.
HelplineRecovery is never more than a phone call away. We operate a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week helpline which lists local meeting information and offers contact with trained volunteers who are recovering addicts and members of the local NA community. In greater West Palm Beach, northern Palm Beach County and the Glades area, call (561)848-6262.
For a directory of helplines in other areas, we suggest you consult the international phonelines page at www.na.org.
Frequently Asked Questions
You are welcome to attend one of our open Meetings, but we ask that you just listen and then get with someone after the meeting. If you have questions about what is addiction, please read NA Bulletin #17 “What is addiction?”.

“Carrying the message” has to be one of our most sacred phrases in Narcotics Anonumous. We pepper our conversation, from casual and informal to heartfelt sharing in an NA meeting, with references to how we base our many actions on this spiritual idea- whether those actions are service-related, addict-to-addict, or the daily grind of living on life’ terms. Those three words sum up pretty much why we do what we do in NA and how vital it is to the continuance of our fellowship.
The fellowship of NA operates under ‘Traditions’ which are guidelines on how NA and groups carry the message. Tradition 5 states: “Each group has but one primary purpose – to carry the message to the addict who still suffers.”

Narcotics Anonymous is a global, community-based organization with a multi-lingual and multicultural membership. NA was founded in 1953, and our membership growth was minimal during our initial twenty years as an organization. Since the publication of our Basic Text in 1983, the number of members and meetings has increased dramatically. Today, NA members hold more than 61,000 meetings weekly in 129 countries. We offer recovery from the effects of addiction through working a twelve-step program, including regular attendance at group meetings. The group atmosphere provides help from peers and offers an ongoing support network for addicts who wish to pursue and maintain a drug-free lifestyle.
