Disability in NA
SWL Web & Disabilities in NA This group is working to connect members and newcomers with disabilities in NA and to find the existing members with disabilities. NA is all about unity and inclusivity especially for the newcomer but also for those who struggle to get to meeting due to their disabilities. This is a virtual group meeting on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of every month only at 7.30pm UK/Irish time on Zoom.
Examples of disabilities included in our group are -
Hard of hearing
Like any other NA group our primary purpose it to carry the message to the still suffering addict–you can attend our meeting if you have a desire to get clean, you don’t have to been clean to be welcome.
Talk to an addict in recovery with disabilities – please call the NA helpline and they will put you in touch with one of our group members.

Minority Groups – Disabilities in NA is one of many minority groups in NA. We link in with illness in recovery groups and mental illness groups. The difference with us is we place a special focus on disabilities and are providing a platform for members with disabilities to connect in a way that isn’t happening in general meetings. Members of our group might feel separate, isolated and different, our aim is to help us feel heard and included with identification and empathy.
Narcotics Anonymous is present worldwide.
