The Catawba Valley Area of Narcotics Anonymous has meetings in Hickory, Conover, Newton, Statesville, Lincolnton, Granite Falls, and Bethlehem, North Carolina. We offer help to those seeking freedom from active addiction. Recovery is what happens in our meetings. We are a 12 Step fellowship for those who struggle with substance abuse disorder or drug addiction. We do not care what drugs you were on, who your connections were, or what you have done in the past. We are here to help you with what you want to do to recover from the disease of addiction. We are a network of addicts in recovery helping others find recovery. Although we are not the only way to stop using drugs, our members have found that simple abstinence is not enough. We need each other’s help to stay free from active addiction.

What is Narcotics Anonymous?
Narcotics Anonymous is a global, community-based organization with a multilingual 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 58,000 meetings weekly in 131 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.
Our name, Narcotics Anonymous, is not meant to imply a focus on any particular drug; NA’s approach makes no distinction between drugs including alcohol.
Membership is free, and we have no affiliation with any organizations outside of NA including governments, religions, law enforcement groups, or medical and psychiatric associations. Through all of our service efforts and our cooperation with others seeking to help addicts, we strive to reach a day when every addict in the world has an opportunity to experience our message of recovery in his or her own language and culture.
