Narcotics Anonymous

Narcotics Anonymous is a global community-based organisation with a multilingual and multicultural membership. NA was founded in 1953.

Today there were over 61,800 meetings held weekly in 129 countries worldwide, speaking 65 languages.  NA literature has been translated into 40 different languages.  

NA was established in New Zealand in 1982.  Currently there are more than 120 meetings a week held nationally. The local website address is nzna.org

The Narcotics Anonymous primary message is that any addict can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live.

The name “Narcotics Anonymous” is not meant to imply a focus on any particular drug.  The NA approach makes no distinction between drugs (including alcohol).

Membership is free and NA has no affiliation with any outside organisations.

NA offers recovery from the effects of addiction through working a 12-step programme, 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.

Overeaters Anonymous

Do you have patients whose weight, body image, food attitudes or behaviours cause health problems? We would like to introduce you to Overeaters Anonymous.

Overeater Anonymous www.oa.org is a Fellowship of individuals who have a common problem: compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviours. OA offers programme of recovery for those who suffer from compulsive eating including overeating, bulimia, anorexia. We join together to share experience, strength and hope with one another to solve this problem and to help other compulsive overeaters do the same.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop eating compulsively. There are no dues or fees for OA membership. We are self-supporting through our own contributions. Our goal is to abstain from compulsive eating one day at a time. We do this through regular contact with other OA members, attending OA meetings, and by following the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Overeaters Anonymous.
