How Phone Line Meetings Works: They are considered long distance calls to landline numbers. Check with your service provider so you don’t get excessive charges. Dial phone number and when prompted, enter access code and the pound (#) symbol. On some lines you are asked for your name and the # symbol again. You do not have to give your name, just enter #. You are then in the meeting! Press * and then 6 to mute and unmute your phone (*6). 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 don’t use them when you are off mute. The Chairperson will give you any further instructions. If your phone provider charges to call teleconference numbers, you can find current back-door numbers for some of our meetings on the Announcements page or try the free app Intelidial from I-Tunes or Play Store (no endorsement, just info).
This is a button. If you click on it with your mouse or touch it on your phone it will either take you somewhere else or allow you to download something. The title will tell you what or where. This particular one doesn't do anything.
Activities showcases current phone line events such as marathons or speaker jams. Anyone, especially those who love to do service, is welcome to join the Activity Committee, just show up on Sunday afternoons.

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.
The Loving Our Long-Timers Meeting features speakers, most with 30+ years of recovery, who were witnesses to the early development of our beloved Fellowship. Currently at almost 7,000 years of clean time recorded, these honored speakers tell their stories, our history and the parts played by others now gone. We hope that by recording these meetings, our present and future members will be able to hear our history come alive through the voices of those who lived them. You will also find tributes to some of our earliest members who have passed on by those who knew them personally including Jimmy Kinnon.
If you want to share your long-timer story or know someone with 30+ years, please contact us.

You will also find complete conferences or speaker jams, many with an emphasis on history. All speakers on this page are favorites of home group members. You won't find any drug-a-logs.
About Our Phone Meetings and How They Work
Originally started in 2008 as outreach to carry an NA meeting to a hospitalized member in FL, teleconference meetings have grown to meet the needs of many members. The diversity of our membership is represented by hospitalized and home-bound members including older members who can no longer get out, professional drivers on the road, geographically challenged members, parents who stay home with children, victims of really bad storms who swell our meetings for a few days until the weather clears, members of smaller communities who are seeking more anonymity for gut level sharing and those who are simply seeking multiple flavors of recovery. NA teleconference meetings are a wonderful addition to a well-rounded recovery platform and 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.
