Maine Narcotics Anonymous is a fellowship of recovering drug addicts who have come together to solve their common problem of addiction. We apply a program of recovery with a single and profound promise: freedom from active addiction.

This website serves the Maine Area of Narcotics Anonymous (MASCNA) and the Eastern Maine Area of Narcotics Anonymous (EMASCNA)

Think you might have a drug problem?

If you think you might have a problem with drugs we encourage you to attend an NA meeting. You can view times and locations of meetings here or by clicking on “Meetings” at the top of the page. Although some meetings are listed as closed to non-addicts, if you are wondering if you are an addict you are invited to attend ANY meeting whether it is closed or not. You don’t have to be a member, but if there is a part of you that wants to stop using drugs then you already meet the requirements for membership in NA. Our experience has shown that those addicts who come to meetings have the best chance of staying clean. If you would like an idea of what to expect at an NA meeting, click here. If you cannot attend a meeting and wish to talk to a recovering addict, call our helpline at 1-800-974-0062.

Basic Information

Narcotics Anonymous is a global, community-based organization with a multi-lingual 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. As of 2020, NA members hold more than 76,075 meetings weekly in 144 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 among 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.
