Living the Twelve Steps

Narcotics Anonymous 12 Steps to a New Life

The Discovery House believes that the 12 Steps of Narcotics Anonymous program is an effective tool in ensuring long-term recovery success.  

Similar to Alcoholics Anonymous 12-step program, Narcotics Anonymous includes attending regular meetings to obtain on-going support during long-term recovery to a life free of substance abuse.

12-step programs have realized great success in avoiding relapse by providing a safe place for recovering substance abusers to find the support they need, and share their experiences of addiction and recovery to help others.

Anonymity is encouraged to ensure the privacy of all those attending the meetings. New members are urged to listen to others during the first couple of meetings and look for an experienced member they can relate to as a possible sponsor, make new non-addicted friends, and offer support to others when appropriate.
