Central Indiana Area of Narcotics Anonymous

Our gratitude speaks, when we care and when we share with others the N.A. way, that no addict seeking recovery need ever die from the horrors of addiction.


Central Indiana Area of Narcotics Anonymous (CIANA) centers around Indianapolis and the surrounding cities of Avon, Brownsburg, Camby, Carmel, Cicero, Clermont, Danville, Fishers, Franklin, Greenfield, Greenwood, Martinsville, Noblesville, Plainfield, Rushville, Shelbyville, Whiteland, Zionsville. CIANA currently provides support for 99 meetings in 9 counties.

Our Basic Text, Narcotics Anonymous, provides the best description of who we are and what we do: “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.

The Twelve Steps of NA are the basis of our recovery program. Our meetings are where we share recovery with one another, but applying our program consists of much more than simply attending NA meetings.

People have all sorts of reasons for attending NA meetings, but the purpose of each meeting is to give NA members a place to share recovery with other addicts.

How Recovery Has Improved Our Lives

Social Connection
Stable Housing

* Survey completed by 28,495 NA members. The survey was made available at the 2018 World Convention of NA in Orlando, Florida USA. Additionally, this survey was available for members who chose to participate online.

Traveling the open road

"This is our road to spiritual growth."

Basic Text, p. 37

When we arrived at our first NA meeting, it looked like the end of the road to many of us. We weren't going to be able to use anymore. We were spiritually bankrupt. Most of us were totally isolated and didn't think we had much to live for. Little did we realize that, as we began our program of recovery, we were stepping onto a road of unlimited possibilities.

At first, just not using was tough enough. Yet, as we watched other addicts working the steps and applying those principles in their lives, we began to see that recovery was more than just not using. The lives of our NA friends had changed. They had a relationship with the God of their understanding. They were responsible members of the fellowship and of society. They had a reason to live. We began to believe these things were possible for us, too.

As we continue our recovery journey, we can get sidetracked by complacency, intolerance, or dishonesty. When we do, we need to recognize the signs quickly and get back on our path--the open road to freedom and growth.

Just for Today: I am continuing to develop my spiritual, social, and general living skills by applying the principles of my program. I can travel as far as I wish on the open road of recovery.
