How To Find Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Meetings In Ohio
If you or someone you love are facing drug addiction, you don’t have to do so alone. Narcotics Anonymous meetings in Ohio are open, welcoming places where those with addiction join together to support one another throughout the recovery journey.
Narcotics Anonymous, or NA, is a leading nonprofit organization facilitating fellowship and accountability between men and women of all ages who live with various forms of addiction, particularly opioid or drug abuse.
The organization is the second-largest twelve-step organization in the world after Alcoholics Anonymous. NA has tens of thousands of meetings in well over 100 countries, numerous remote meeting options, and a strong presence in the state of Ohio.
How To Find NA Meetings In Ohio
From there, you can select Ohio and enter your local address to view available in-person meetings in your area, meeting schedules, and more information about each group.
You can also look for virtual meetings that use platforms like Zoom and Skype, or filter your options by meeting day, language, or specific formats (open/closed meetings, wheelchair accessible, young people, Basic Text study, non-smoking, etc.)
Double Check Meeting Details
Note that the schedules and details of different meetings can change, and the information presented in your search results may sometimes be out of date. So, reach out to specific meetings near you to confirm your findings and kindly let NA know if any listed information is incorrect.
NA Groups & Addiction Treatment
Narcotics Anonymous has played a key role in the recovery journeys of many Ohio residents. Drug rehab centers, Christian churches, and other community churches and secular organizations actively promote and facilitate NA meetings due to the support the group provides.
Both AA and NA act as 12 step studies, building around twelve specific traditions that the groups’ founders established as a road to recovery. Although NA meetings and literature studies are helpful, they don’t compare to professional addiction treatment options.
However, participating in an NA group while you receive professional treatment services will likely make your recovery efforts stronger and can be a significant benefit.
Professional Addiction Treatment
Medical detox programs, where healthcare providers help participants through the process of drug discontinuation and withdrawal, is the first step in professional care.
After detox, other professional treatment options found outside of NA include cognitive behavioral therapy, medication-assisted treatment, mental health counseling, and other evidence-based practices.
Ohio Recovery Center
At Ohio Recovery Center, we offer professional detox and inpatient care in a residential treatment setting. We’re located in Van Wert, around 2 hours northwest of Columbus, and we can coordinate NA group meetings along with your professional addiction recovery.
