The 12 Steps of NA

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a recovery program that uses a 12-step model to help members achieve and maintain abstinence from drug addiction. The 12 steps aim to motivate members to make positive changes in their lives. The steps are:

  1. We admitted we were powerless over our addiction, that our lives had become unmanageable. This first step calls for honest self-assessment of the damage addiction has caused.
  2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. This step asks members to open themselves to the possibility of help from a spiritual source.
  3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him. Members make a commitment to let their higher power guide their recovery.
  4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. Members take an honest look at their lives to better understand their patterns of behavior.
  5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being is the exact nature of our wrongs. This step stresses the importance of accountability in recovery.
  6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. Members become willing to let go of character flaws holding them back.
  7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings. Members ask their higher power for help in overcoming flaws.
  8. Made a list of all the people we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all. Members take responsibility for their actions.
  9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when doing so would injure them or others. Members make amends if it can be done responsibly.
  10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, we promptly admitted it. Members regularly self-reflect and take accountability.
  11. 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. Members strengthen their spiritual connection.
  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. Members commit to helping others in recovery.
