What is NA?

Narcotics Anonymous is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a problem. We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean and build a new way of life. 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 programme 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.

Welcome to Narcotics Anonymous Australia

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.

What is AA?

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

AA is an informal society of more than 2 million recovering alcoholics throughout the world. In Australia, there are about 18,000 members. They meet in over 1,900 local meetings spread around the country. Meetings range in size from a handful in some localities to a hundred or more in larger communities.

AA is nonprofessional – it doesn’t have clinics, doctors, counsellors or psychologists. All members are themselves recovering from alcoholism. There is no central authority controlling how AA groups operate. It is up to the members of each group to decide what they do. However, the AA program of recovery has proved to be so successful that almost every group follows it in very similar ways.

AA is not a religious organisation nor is it affiliated with any religious body. It welcomes members of all religions, agnostics and atheists alike. You don’t have to sign up or achieve anything to be a member. You’re a member of a group if you choose to be. You can come and go as you please. No one is “in charge” of a group. We work through the offer of help and suggestion only. No one can tell you what you should or shouldn’t do.

AA works through members telling their stories of what we used to be like, what happened and what we are like now. The AA program, known as The Twelve Steps, provides a framework for self-examination and a road to recovery, free of alcohol.

Our mission at Recovery.org is to connect people and their families with the information and resources to help them recover from substance abuse and behavioral disorders. We are a private resource and do not receive funding from any state or government programs, working instead with some of the country’s most respected treatment organizations who support and sponsor our efforts. We are real people who have had experience with addiction and recovery—some of us firsthand, with others having seen the havoc it can wreak on family and friends. We have come out of the other side stronger for it, and firmly believing that recovery is possible for everyone. There is no tried-and-true formula that works for every person, and we will all take different paths. Still, we believe that recovery is absolutely possible, and that it should be placed within reach of anyone and everyone who wishes to get better.

We’re investing in projects like this one to make everyone a believer. See more of them under the section “What’s to Come on Recovery.org?” We’ve spent years building this website into a meaningful and authoritative resource, and we continue to make improvements.

Welcome!

This website is the gathering place of an online group of addicts. This website and group are not endorsed by, or representative of, Narcotics Anonymous as a whole. We are simply a group of addicts who have come together to find recovery, just like every other NA group in the world. – Tradition Four – “Each Group should be autonomous, except in matters affecting other Groups, or N.A. as a whole.”

A chat room provides a place for people to communicate in real time through a web browser. To join a chat room, users will often select from a variety of “rooms” and are typically required to register prior to logging on. To “chat”, users type and submit messages that are immediately sent to the chat room for others to view and reply to. Thus real-time chat meetings feel more like face-to-face meetings than communicating via message boards, though some message boards integrate real-time messaging features as well.

Chat meetings are essentially chat rooms than include a chairperson who introduces topics that others in the room address. These meetings are scheduled in advance for a specific period of time and are usually 1-3 hours long. At some meetings, an opening and closing statement is also included.

In “voice chat” participants hear each other discuss the meeting topics. With the use of a microphone and speakers, participants can talk and listen in real-time to others in the room. Users who do not have microphones can participate in the standard chat room fashion by typing their messages in directly.

My NA Toolkit (NAT) is an exciting new sobriety tool for members of Narcotics Anonymous. It has a Journal that makes it easy to find time to write in your journal. Just have access to an internet connection at home (computer) or on the go (mobile devices and tablets) and journal via typing.

It also has a Spot Check Inventory that allows you to quickly get rid of resentments when on the go and you can later add more detail via your computer because all data is securely synced to the cloud using the same security as banks!

Just because you’re a recovering drug addict doesn’t mean life will slow down. Instead it will move forward, and so must you. Often times moving forward means being on the constant go. In effect, this means that if you’re using journaling as part of your recovery, then you don’t have time to sit down and write your feelings out.

There’s another problem that arises with paper journaling: privacy. If you mistakenly leave your journal out, someone might “accidentally” read it. Although a journal is a private matter and it’s likely closed, people may still somehow invite themselves to opening your journal; thus, reading your private thoughts.

Oh, what scandals can occur from private information!
It’s so good to know that both of these situations are avoidable – thanks to this App!

Best Anxiety Reducing App Out There!
I’ve tried several apps to help with my anxiety problems, but this app by far is the best! It’s helped me tremendously more than anything I’ve tried and made such a positive improvement in my overall well being. I highly recommend it to anyone suffering from stress, anxiety and panic attacks. It works!

Anxiety, tension and stress are common in everyday modern life, and as well as a source of unhappiness, can lead to other problems. Stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol signal the body to a state of arousal to meet survival instincts. However, misplaced stressors, can do harm to your long term health; both physical effects such as raised blood pressure, and mental impairments including depression. Anxiety and tension are often unnecessary sources of stress, and give feelings of unease, affect our appetite, and in some cases lead to self medication of recreational drugs. All of which is obviously detrimental to a happy and fulfilling lifestyle. So in order to tackle many of the problems of modern living, it is important to deal firstly with personal wellbeing and happiness. Make it a priority to introduce a balanced and appropriate response to tension, and learn through self-hypnosis some vital strategies to reducing anxiety and all the negative consequences that follow.
This App introduces the iCan hypnosis brand to a wider audience by being free of charge, and can be used to learn self-hypnosis for tackling many other problems. We have applications that deal with addiction to nicotine, alcohol, that deal with medical disorders that can be reached through the process of hypnosis. It is a clinical hypnosis method that can directly connect to the subconscious and allieviate and ultimitely allow you to be free from these troubles.
Hypnosis is more than a method of relaxation, and the audio recordings contain subliminal signals that speak to the subconsious with powerful effect. We do not advocate background music, and recommend a quiet and safe environment where you will not be distrubed. The audio lasts for about half an hour, but once you have learned the technique of self hypnosis, you can use the technique for just fifteen minutes, as often as required. Initially, you should use the App about 3 times per week. We kindly ask if you have found benefit from the iCan hypnosis App, please leave a positive review and let others know of your success.

This 3Dme Community Health Education App explains the symptoms and consequences that the drug commonly known as ICE or crystal meth, has on the human body. A 9 minute video with captivating 3D animations, voiceover & graphics takes the viewer inside the human body to show how this drug is typically consumed, and what the physiological & psychological effects are. Consumption routes are intravenous, snorting, smoking or swallowing.

We take a look inside the human body to demonstrate where the adrenal glands are, which release adrenalin. We also journey inside the brain where the chemicals serotonin & dopamine are released. The combination of the release of adrenalin, serotonin & dopamine gives users a high, however what goes up must come down. The sequence of events after consuming this drug include Rush, High, Binge, Tweaking, Crash then Withdrawal. Each event poses a physical & psychological threat to the user & the people around them, which is also presented.

The presentation style is intended to be non-didactic, whilst also informing the viewer about the dangers of meth. This information will equip the viewer with a general understanding of why someone taking crystal meth behaves the way they do. Whilst our intention is to inform & educate young people, parents, teachers & health professionals about the dangers of crystal meth, we believe this information is also helpful to people who may have taken the drug & are trying to understand why they feel the way they do. Additionally, there is a question and answer section which the viewer can use to test their knowledge of this topic.
