If you are sick or feel like you might be coming down with something, please do not attend an In-Person meeting for the protection of the group. Call an area helpline or use Virtual meetings to connect with other recovering addicts.
If you need meeting information for other areas or best practices or suggestions for online meetings, visit na.org/virtual
This may not be an easy thing to do. All through our usage, we told ourselves, “I can handle it.” Even if this was true in the beginning, it is not so now. The drugs handled us. We lived to use and used to live. Very simply, an addict is a person whose life is controlled by drugs.
The CAR is a compilation of motions that have been brought before Narcotics Anonymous at the world level. Just as we have motions and business meetings at group, area, and regional levels we also have them at the world level. They are voted on at the World Service Conference (WSC) once every two years by delegates from regions and zones around the world. The CAR is made in preparation for the World Service Conference (WSC).
Motions can be made by Regions or the World Board. Motions made by regions often involve issues important to the region, while World Board motions concern the worldwide fellowship as a whole. These motions affect NA as a whole and impact NA members all around the world.
