As addicts, we know the pain of addiction. But we also know the joy of recovery we have found in Narcotics Anonymous. Narcotics Anonymous Is a fellowship of recovering addicts who are living their lives, one day at a time, without the use of drugs. We meet regularly to help each other stay clean. It costs nothing to become a member of N.A. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using.

"Also, our inventories usually include material on relationships."

Basic Text, p. 29

What an understatement this is! Especially in later recovery, entire inventories may focus on our relationships with others. Our lives have been filled with relationships with lovers, friends, parents, co-workers, children, and others with whom we come in contact. A look at these associations can tell us much about our essential character.

Often our inventories catalog the resentments that arise from our day-to-day interactions with others. We strive to look at our part in these frictions. Are we placing unrealistic expectations on other people? Do we impose our standards on others? Are we sometimes downright intolerant?

Often just the writing of our inventory will release some of the pressure that a troubled relationship can produce. But we must also share this inventory with another human being. That way, we get some needed perspective on our part in the problem and how we can work toward a solution.

The inventory is a tool that allows us to begin healing our relationships. We learn that today, with the help of an inventory, we can start to enjoy our relationships with others.

Just for Today: I will inventory the part I play in my relationships. I will seek to play a richer, more responsible part in those relationships.

A Little About Our Area

Mendocino County, California is 3,510 square miles located along over 125 miles of breathtaking coast. We are known for our giant redwood forests and magnificent Pacific Ocean coastline. The environment is well preserved; the air is fresh, and the presence of wildlife makes our area one to escape to. 
Oh yes and at the moment we have over 45 NA meetings!

Although our area is vast and contains many cities, 7 of them have meetings and we
still have a close knit fellowship with good solid recovery.

Our activities change throughout the year and include camp-outs, BBQ's, dances, picnics, bowling and bingo!
We are a member of the T.A.C. convention committee.



Area Service and PI have  positions that need to be filled, and H&I needs support as well - click HERE for more information about when and where to show up to be of service.
