The Northwest Michigan Area of NA, at group level, provides a forum for addicts to share their experiences of their plight and what they did to overcome the problems they encountered on the way. The concept of sharing one addict’s experience with another helps to provide solutions for those seeking answers to the day to day problems encountered with our disease.

NA’s organization is based upon people helping each other. Within NA’s structure lies several different levels of service which allows for the creation of service committees responsible for extending the arm of NA to the local communities. These service committees are made up of recovering addicts who want to get more involved in helping to provide solutions and resources beyond their own group, to other Groups and Area’s within Michigan’s 2 Regions of NA.
