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
Our primary purpose is to carry the message of recovery to the still suffering addict. If you are an addict, give yourself a break and try Narcotics Anonymous. It can work for you as it has worked for countless others. Read Who, What, How and Why (Information about the Narcotics Anonymous Fellowship from our NA World Services Website – Reprinted from the White Booklet Information Pamphlet of Narcotics Anonymous).
You are the only person who can answer this question. There is nothing shameful about being an addict. Addiction is a disease and addicts are sick people who need help. There is an informational pamphlet called Am I an Addict? that might be helpful if you are questioning whether or not you are an addict.
Our members come from all walks of life. Anyone with the desire to stop using may join our fellowship. We seem to have many differences; the drugs we used, the circumstances of our lives and the degree to which our disease had progressed may have been different. We do share two important things in common: the disease of our addiction and the desire to stop using drugs. We concentrate on our similarities, not our differences.
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?”.

NA is not associated or affiliated with, nor endorses any religious organizations and espouses no religious beliefs. Our program is a set of principles; Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions which are spiritual in nature. While these principles mention God, each member is free to develop their own concept of a higher power.
If you are a member of NA and are looking for more information and would like to get involved in service please visit our pages on Area Service Structure or visit the Upcoming Events (below) for up to the minute details related to the Greater Orlando Area and the Florida Region.

“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.
