NA Literature

Recovery is available for everyone!

Embrace the message in the NA group readings, information pamphlets, booklets, texts, and workbooks.

Written by members, our literature offers identification and a message of hope to the still-suffering addict. Recovery literature is an invaluable source of help for members, potential members, and those who want to help addicts.

The NA program is a way of life based in the Twelve Steps. The steps offer members an avenue for growth and change to maintain their recovery. We learn how to apply these steps to our lives by reading NA literature and going to meetings.

The collective experience of NA members can be heard in our literature, illustrating how we live life on life’s terms. Over the years NA has changed, our literature has expanded and been revised, but the message remains the same: An addict, any addict, can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live.

One of our books, Just for Today, is a daily rumination on recovery in the Narcotics Anonymous program. There is one reading for each day of the year! Check it out below, see if it speaks to you!

You can get the Just for Today reading in your inbox every day!

It Works: How and Why

Living Clean

White Booklet

This booklet is an introduction to the Fellowship of Narcotics Anonymous. It is written for those men and women who, like ourselves, suffer from a seemingly hopeless addiction to drugs. There is no cure for addiction, but recovery is possible by a program of simple spiritual principles. This booklet is not meant to be comprehensive, but it contains the essentials that in our personal and group experience we know to be necessary for recovery.

Just for Today

The Just for Today Daily Meditations book has readings about recovery in Narcotics Anonymous for every day of the year. Check it out below!

The Narcotics Anonymous Step Working Guide is a useful tool for working through the 12-Steps with the help of a sponsor! Check it out below!

Informational Pamphlets
