Starting a new NA Meeting in your Community

Print This Page!

Here are some guidelines for starting a new Narcotics Anonymous meeting in your community.

A minimum of two NA members is suggested in starting this process. It is suggested that at least a 1 year commitment be made from those starting the meeting to allow for consistency and stability. If you are not an NA member but want to start a meeting anyway, it may be best to get in touch with your local NA Area Service Committee to ask for help.


The Seacoast Area of NA in NH meets the first Sunday of each month† at the Wentworth-Douglas Hospital, Community Conference Room, 789 Central Ave., Dover, NH, at 6:00PM.

The Granite State Area of NA ASC meets the second Sunday of each month† at 9:00am at the VA Hospital on Smyth Road in Manchester on the first floor.

(† Unless changed for holidays or bad weather. Check the website for news and notices or call our NH 24 Hour Help line).


As our NA literature states (i.e. our Group Booklet and The Group Information Pamphlet), it is important to ensure the group will be reliable in starting each and every week and begin and end on time within the facility where it meets.

Ultimately, the success of a group relies heavily on its members, and each member’s ability to successfully carry the clear and concise message of Narcotics Anonymous.
Having the group trusted servant positions (Secretary, Treasurer, Group Service Representative, Chairperson, etc.) filled is very important.
