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.

We need each other

Page 35

"Anyone may join us, regardless of age, race, sexual identity creed, religion, or lack of religion."

Basic Text, p. 9

Addiction closed our minds to anything new or different. We didn't need anyone or anything, we thought. There was nothing of value to be found in anyone from a different neighborhood, a different racial or ethnic background, or a different social or economic class. We may have thought that if it was different, it was bad.

In recovery, we can't afford such attitudes. We came to NA because our very best thinking had gotten us nowhere. We must open our minds to experience that works, no matter where it comes from, if we hope to grow in our recovery.

Regardless of our personal backgrounds, we all have two things in common with one another in NA that we share with no one else: our disease, and our recovery. We depend on one another for our shared experience-and the broader that experience, the better. We need every bit of experience, every different angle on our program we can find to meet the many challenges of living clean.

Recovery often isn't easy. The strength we need to recover, we draw from our fellow NA members. Today, we are grateful for the diversity of our group's membership, for in that diversity we find our strength.

Just for Today: I know that the more diverse my groups experience is, the better able my group will be to offer me support in the different circumstances I find myself facing. Today, I welcome addicts from all backgrounds to my home group.

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.
