 12 Concepts of Service in Narcotics Anonymous


1.      To fulfill our fellowship's primary purpose, the NA groups have joined together to create a structure which develops, coordinates, and maintains services on behalf of NA as a whole.

2.      The final responsibility and authority for NA services rests with the NA groups.

3.      The NA groups delegate to the service structure the authority necessary to fulfill the responsibilities assigned to it.

4.      Effective leadership is highly valued in Narcotics Anonymous. Leadership qualities should be carefully considered when selecting trusted servants.

5.      For each responsibility assigned to the service structure, a single point of decision and accountability should be clearly defined.

6.      Group conscience is the spiritual means by which we invite a loving God to influence our decisions.

7.      All members of a service body bear substantial responsibility for that body's decisions and should be allowed to fully participate in its decision-making processes.

8.      Our service structure depends on the integrity and effectiveness of our communication.

9.      All elements of our service structure have the responsibility to carefully consider all viewpoints in their decision-making processes.

10.  Any member of a service body can petition that body for the redress of a personal grievance, without fear of reprisal.

11.  NA funds are to be used to further our primary purpose, and must be managed responsibly.

12.  In keeping with the spiritual nature of Narcotics Anonymous, our structure should always be one of service, never of government.
