Welcome to the NEWNA website
Thank you for visiting our new website. It is our hope that new layout will provide an easy to access place for NEWNA information. We are always working hard to evolve this site and expand its content. Please feel free to get involved by providing ideas for what you would like to read or acquire from the new North East Wisconsin Area of Narcotics Anonymous website.
In light of the concern over the Corona virus (COVID-19), some thoughts about how this impacts Narcotics Anonymous locally in the NEW area:
First, we are, “recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean,” groups are autonomous, however, and this is an attempt at some guidelines to carry us through this challenging time.
Check to see if the facility where your meeting is being held is open to having the meeting at this time. If the facility is open, decide whether to have the meeting, if the meeting is open, consider not hugging or touching at this time. If the group decides to not have the meeting, consider meeting online or reaching out on the phone.
Remember it is a we program, and we recover together (even if not in physical proximity). Let’s look out for each other, reach out, help each other and remember, we are NA (Never Alone). Please keep us updated if you are closing a meeting. Some housekeeping:
The area guidelines meeting is cancelled for now, it was set for Sunday. *April area service -the church is closed and area will be cancelled. * If there is urgent or pressing business the executive committee of NEWNA can hopefully deal with what may come up. Please reach out and talk via phone if you are struggling or call 1-866-285-7830
Consider using this time to read literature.

What is Narcotics Anonymous
Narcotics Anonymous is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean. There are no dues or fees. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using.
We want you to know that you are welcome in Narcotics Anonymous. NA has helped hundreds of thousands of addicts to live clean, to accept life on its own terms, and to develop a life that is truly worth living.
