The 12 Steps of NA

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) follows 12 steps that aim to help members achieve and maintain addiction recovery. The steps encourage members to admit powerlessness over addiction, seek help from a higher power, self-reflect, make amends, and help others.

The 12 Steps are:

  • Step 1: We admitted we were powerless over our addiction and that our lives had become unmanageable. This step asks members to honestly accept that drugs have taken control.
  • Step 2: We came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. Members are prompted to open themselves to faith and help from outside themselves.
  • Step 3: We made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him. The program emphasizes the complete surrender of self-will and control to something bigger.
  • Step 4: We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. Introspection helps members understand their own behaviors and flaws.
  • Step 5: We admitted to God, ourselves, and another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. Trusting others builds accountability and sheds secrecy.
  • Step 6: We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. Preparing for change and growth is key.
  • Step 7: We humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings. Faith helps members let go of character flaws and self-destructive patterns.
  • Step 8: We made a list of all the people we had harmed and became willing to make amends with them all. Members reflect on how addiction hurts others and prepare to make things right.
  • Step 9: We made direct amends with such people wherever possible, except when doing so would injure them or others. Making thoughtful, honest amends helps repair relationships damaged by addiction.
  • Step 10: We continued to take personal inventory, and when we were wrong, we promptly admitted it. Ongoing self-reflection and accountability help maintain positive change.
  • Step 11: We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out. Connecting spiritually steers choices.
  • Step 12: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to addicts, and to practice these principles in all our affairs. Helping others sustain recovery by giving purpose.
