NA Groups and Medication  Our 12 Traditions remind us that medication use is a member’s personal decision, and it is an outside issue for NA groups.

Although certain traditions guide its relations with other organizations, Narcotics Anonymous welcomes the cooperation of those in government, the clergy, treatment and healthcare professions, criminal justice organizations, and private voluntary organizations. NA’s non addict friends have been instrumental in getting Narcotics Anonymous started in many countries and helping NA grow worldwide. NA strives to cooperate with others interested in Narcotics Anonymous. Our more common cooperation approaches are: providing contact information, disseminating recovery literature, and sharing information about recovery.
