Welcome to SFANA.com! This website is published by the Southern Foothills Area of Narcotics Anonymous, home to NA meetings in the following communities in North Carolina: Belmont NC, Cramerton NC, Ellenboro NC, Forest City NC, Gastonia NC, Shelby NC and surrounding areas.

The Southern Foothills Area of Narcotics Anonymous formed in the early 1980s with 4 homegroups having 6 meetings per week. Thru the process of more addicts reaching out for help, the fight against the disease of addiction, and the overall growth of NA, our area now has 18 homegroups and 30 meetings per week.

Who is an addict?

Most of us do not have to think twice about this question. We know! Our whole life and thinking was centered in drugs in one form or another—the getting and using and finding ways and means to get more. We lived to use and used to live. Very simply, an addict is a man or woman whose life is controlled by drugs. We are people in the grip of a continuing and progressive illness whose ends are always the same: jails, institutions, and death.

What is the Narcotics Anonymous program?

NA is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean. This is a program of complete abstinence from all drugs. There is only one requirement for membership, the desire to stop using. We suggest that you keep an open mind and give yourself a break. Our program is a set of principles written so simply that we can follow them in our daily lives. The most important thing about them is that they work.
