What is the Area Service Committee?

“Workhorse” of the service structure—maybe that’s the best way to describe the area service committee. Most of the hands-on work of delivering NA services to the groups and the community occurs at the area level.

NA groups support meetings where addicts can share their recovery with one another. Only minimal organization is necessary to hold those meetings. But there is much more that can be done to further the primary purpose of Narcotics Anonymous.:
  • NA panel presentations at addiction treatment centers and correctional facilities can reach addicts particularly in need of what we have to offer.
  • Public information presentations to schools and community groups, mailings to addiction treatment professionals, meeting notices in newspapers, and public service announcements on local radio and television stations can help direct people to NA.
  • Directories showing where and when NA groups in the area hold their recovery meetings can help addicts and others find nearby meetings being conducted at times convenient to them.
  • A phoneline service can help addicts seeking recovery find a meeting in their area. It can also provide information about NA to interested community members.
  • A ready supply of NA books and pamphlets can make it easier for groups to stock their literature tables.
  • Social activities can help addicts feel more comfortable in their local NA community and increase unity and camaraderie among area members.
