Alternate service informational structure (for narcotics anonymous)


The following literature is not necessarily  complete - it is for input and review.

Our literature  is written by addicts, for addicts, and is about addicts and recovery through the Fellowship and Program of NA.  Our literature is written by Home Groups and member-addicts in Open Participation, usually at literature conferences hosted by Narcotics Anonymous Home Groups.  

This is "Eighth Tradition Literature", meaning it is not  professionally written.   Any NA Group may use this literature or revise it for their own purposes provided it is always freely given, and that our message is never composed as a "work for hire", but rather written as a "labor of love".  

The literature here is in various stages of development.  Some of it is very near completion and/or already in use by various NA Groups, while some is simply in the input phase and will essentially be a collection of very raw material submitted by various addicts and Home Groups.  What happens to it, is up to you and your Group!  We invite all NA members to submit input and/or use this literature as you see fit through your Home Group Conscience and in accordance with the Traditions and above conditions.

The ASIS Groups may eventually approve one, none, all, or any combination of these and future pieces.  What is important is that we as members in our Home Groups are writing!  No Group is bound by the decisions expressed at the ASIS Conference and any Group may approve any piece of literature for their Group purpose at any time!
