One of the hardest things about being a recovering drug addict in Saskatchewan is knowing that there is going to come a time when you are going to have to stay away from drugs on your own, when you need to depend on your own strength of will. The best way to make sure that you stay sober is by joining a support group like Narcotics Anonymous.

Currently there are 12 Narcotics Anonymous chapters in Saskatchewan. These meetings are free, the drug addicts who attend the meetings are never charged a membership fee or subscription. The only thing they have to do is show up and be committed to beating their drug addiction. The drug addict also doesn’t have to worry about scheduling a meeting; all they have to do is just show up.

Narcotics Anonymous is very similar to Alcoholics Anonymous; the only real difference is that one deals with an alcohol addiction and the other deals with drugs. The reason for the separation between the two is that the addictions to the two different substances cause the brain to react differently.

One of the reasons that Narcotics Anonymous is so effective at helping people overcome their addiction to drugs is because the program provides companionship No one is lonelier than a person who has just stopped using drugs. The loneliness has a way of creeping up on a person and consuming their mind. This loneliness often makes the person reach for drugs.

There are two ways that Narcotics Anonymous helps banish the loneliness. The first is with the weekly meetings.

The amount of weekly meetings that a recovering drug addict can attend totally depends on the local chapter of Narcotics Anonymous. In smaller towns their might only be one meeting a week, whereas another, larger city will have meetings every single day. The rule of thumb is that when a person first leaves the rehabilitation program they need to attend as many meetings as they possibly can. The meetings provide the addict with a safe environment where they can go and discuss what they are going through. The fact that everyone else in the meeting is also recovering from an addiction to drugs means that addict does not feel alone. It also means that they can talk without fear of judgment

The second way that the Narcotics Anonymous program uses companionship as part of the drug recovery process is through the sponsorship program. The way the sponsorship program works is very simple. One of the recovering addicts who have been clean for some time takes a person who is just starting down the road to recovery and helps them on their journey. The person who is doing the sponsoring agrees to be a shoulder to cry on and the voice of reason when one is needed. The sponsor is always available for support and guidance.

Many recovered drug addicts say that the fact that they know that they can turn to the Narcotics Anonymous organization whenever they feel like reaching for drugs gives them the confidence they need to face each new day.

Narcotics Anonymous is an adaptation of Alcoholics Anonymous and uses the 12-step program adapted from AA. The steps are designed to help a person admit they are powerless over their addiction. In addition, it helps them move past their guilt and shame by admitting their faults and making amends with the individuals around them.

Individuals work the 12-steps and receive support and encouragement from fellow members and their individual sponsors. In addition, they begin to move past the guilt and shame and begin to make amends.

Yes, like AA, it is entirely funded by donations. The program is 100% free to join. Options collections are taken during the meeting, but it is not mandatory. Anyone can join regardless of financial situation.

Yes, NA Meetings can help fight cravings and treat addiction. The 12-step meetings owe much of their success to sponsorship. Suppose an individual has the urge to use drugs, they can call their sponsor. Talking it out with a supportive individual helps remove the power from the cravings.
