What is Service?
Our literature says that our primary purpose in Narcotics Anonymous is to carry the message to the addict who still suffers. We do this by being of service. Service comes in many forms and can be undertaken by anyone.
The PR Basics pamphlet contains material from the Public Relations Handbook which has been simplified. It was designed for members who are considering PR service and desire to gain a basic understanding of PR principles.

Hospitals & Institutions: (H&I) is an important service in our Public Relations efforts in NA. Our PR Subcommittee carries the NA message of recovery to addicts who, due to incarceration or institutionalization, do not have full access to regular Narcotics Anonymous meetings.
