Narcotics Anonymous (UK)
Support for recovering drug addicts

About NA

N.A. is a non-profit 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 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. The newcomer is the most important person at any meeting, because we can only keep what we have by giving it away. We have learned from our group experience that those who keep coming to our meetings regularly stay clean.



The primary service provided by Narcotics Anonymous is the local meetings (held weekly).


Meetings may be 'open', meaning anyone can attend or 'closed', meaning only for people who want to address their own drug problems and are facilitated by NA members. Other members may take part by talking in turn about their experiences of addiction and the recovery, strength and hope they've discovered through NA. Please check out the .


NA meetings are held accross London, every day of the week, visit our Meetings section for more information about them plus how to find and attend them


We also hold online meetings every Monday, Wednesday & Friday. Click here to find out more.


Helpline - 0300 999 1212

The NA Helpline is often the first point of contact for people needing support and advice about the nature of drug addiction. Anyone from the using addict, their friends and family members through to drug workers and the press are welcome to call.


Everyone who volunteers for shifts are Recovering Addicts, many of whom called the Helpline themselves at some point. The NA Helpline is open until midnight, seven days a week, but if, for some reason, you get an answer-phone, please DO leave a message and we will get back to you, with the utmost discretion, as soon as possible.
