The 12 Steps of NA

Narcotics Anonymous (NA) is a nonprofit fellowship for recovering drug addicts across Portland, Multnomah, Oregon, and beyond. The program outlines a 12-step process to motivate members toward positive change:

  1. The first step is admitting you have a problem and that drugs have taken control.
  2. Step two asks to believe faith can restore clarity.
  3. The third step is deciding to let your higher power guide your path forward.
  4. Take an honest personal inventory in step four.
  5. Share the inventory results openly and honestly in step five.
  6. Become ready in step six to have your higher power remove shortcomings.
  7. Step seven asks to humbly request the removal of flaws.
  8. Document all those you have harmed and become willing to make amends with them all in step eight.
  9. Where possible, make amends in step nine, unless harmful.
  10. Ongoing honest inventory in step ten with the admission of wrongs.
  11. Through reflection in step eleven, improve connection with a higher power to understand and pursue its will.
  12. After spiritual awakening from steps, share the message and live the principles in step twelve.
