It's never to late, Break the Addiction

Narcotics Anonymous

Narcotics Anonymous was established in 1953 and is largely based on the principles of the 12-step program.

While having a social support network is not mandatory, it is important for a patient, who has recently completed their dependency and addiction treatment, to remain faithful to their treatment and recovery goals by attending groups, such as Narcotics Anonymous. It should be understood that social support groups, like Narcotics Anonymous, are not substitutes to highly individualized treatment programs.

The goal of the group is to help individuals recovering from drug addiction to regain as much control of their lives as possible. If there is one basic requirement to becoming a member, it is to accept that one is truly powerless in his addictions. This does not mean that there is nothing he can do about it, it just means that it will take a lot of effort and support to lead a much better life.

Narcotics AnonymousThroughout the 12-step program, members are strongly encouraged to verbalize and share their experiences. It is here that people are able to find the courage and motivation to remain sober and addiction free for as long as they possibly can. These support groups do not provide counseling nor any form of treatment but they do provide camaraderie and a bond among individuals who share similar life experiences. The interpersonal relationships formed in these groups are based on peer support. Individuals are more likely to trust someone who has gone through the same life experiences than someone who is heavily reliant on books and literature. It is in the sharing of life experiences that makes peer support groups enticing and important.

As one goes through the 12-step process, he naturally develops skills to become a better person. He also imbibes some of the ideal characteristics of a good leader. By the time he has completed the 12-step process, he can then take the role of a sponsor and help a new recovering addict. He becomes the facilitator and a guide for others who are just beginning their road to recovery. Narcotics Anonymous members do not strive for perfection they only strive to become better people than they previously were. While some would argue that 12-step programs are largely fatalistic in that they put the outcome of one’s efforts solely on some Higher Being, the mere fact that it has millions of members who have been living free from addiction for a long time is a testament to the effectiveness of social support groups.
