Narcotics Anonymous has gotten a lot of attention this week after Philip Seymour Hoffman’s death, so it’ll be this week’s tribe:
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 more than 61,000 meetings weekly in 129 countries.
