GREATER NEW BRUNSWICK
GREATER NEW BRUNSWICK AREA
Narcotics Anonymous is a global, community-based organization with a multi-lingual and multicultural membership. NA was founded in 1953, and our membership growth was minimal during our initial twenty years as an organization. Since the publication of our Basic Text in 1983, the number of members and meetings has increased dramatically.
Today, NA members hold nearly 76,075 meetings weekly in 139 countries. We offer recovery from the effects of addiction through working a twelve-step program, including regular attendance at group meetings. The group atmosphere provides help from peers and offers an ongoing support network for addicts who wish to pursue and maintain a drug-free lifestyle.
Our name, Narcotics Anonymous, is not meant to imply a focus on any particular drug; NA’s approach makes no distinction between drugs including alcohol. Membership is free, and we have no affiliation with any organizations outside of NA including governments, religions, law enforcement groups, or medical and psychiatric associations. Through all of our service efforts and our cooperation with others seeking to help addicts, we strive to reach a day when every addict in the world has an opportunity to experience our message of recovery in his or her own language and culture.
The NA World Services Office defines an Area Service Committee (ASC) meeting as “the primary means by which the services of a local NA community are administered.”
The area committee is composed of group service representatives (GSRs), administrative officers (chairperson, vice chairperson, secretary, treasurer), subcommittee chairpersons, and the area’s regional committee members (RCMs).

This site is hosted by the Greater New Brunswick Area Committee in New Jersey. Here you can learn information about the time and date of local meetings. You can also find news about special activities, such as fun group outings, NA conventions, or workshops.
Greater New Brunswick Area has a monthly meeting (“Area Service”) and we’d love for you to join us.
Greater New Brunswick Area service committees coordinate efforts to carry the NA message on behalf of the groups they serve.
Hosting panel presentations based on personal experience for addicts in treatment centers and jails, or providing the community with public information services, are just two of the ways committees reach out to help the addict who still suffers, their friends and loved ones, or healthcare providers.
Your group service representative (GSR) can tell you more about how you and your group can join in the work of your area service committee.
