About Our Phone Meetings and How They Work
Originally started in 2008 as Outreach to carry an NA meeting to a hospitalized member in Florida, teleconference meetings have grown to meet the needs of many members. The diversity of our membership is represented by hospitalized and home-bound members, older members who can no longer get out, professional drivers on the road, geographically-challenged members, parents at home with children, storm victims who swell our meetings until the weather clears, members of smaller communities seeking more diversity or anonymity for gut level sharing and those who are simply looking for a different flavor of recovery. NA teleconference meetings are a wonderful addition to a well-rounded recovery platform, can serve as life-saving outreach and are a great way to expand your support network nationally or even internationally. However, they are not a replacement for face-to-face meeting attendance. Attend your local NA. Share some hugs.
How Phone Line Meetings Works: Dial phone number and enter access code and the pound (#) symbol. Follow any prompts. You are now in the meeting! Press * and then 6 (*6) to mute and unmute your phone. A voice prompt will tell you if you are muted or not. It is best to stay muted except to share or read. When you are muted you can hear everything but your background noise is cancelled out. Speakers and some Bluetooths cause echoing so please don’t use them when you are off mute. The Chairperson will give you any further instructions.

Home to Teleconference Meetings and Cyber Phone Recovery
Narcotics Anonymous is a 12 Step Recovery Program designed to aid recovery from the disease of addiction. Originally based on the Alcoholics Anonymous 12 Steps and 12 Traditions, we have only broadened their approach from alcohol to the disease of addiction: obsession and compulsion. This is a spiritual, not religious, program.
