IDTs – Membership Survey – Book Project

From the Narcotics Anonymous World Board:

Hello everyone,

We are writing with lots of news and announcements.

Issue Discussion Topics

Issue Discussion Topics (IDTs) are subjects that encourage us to think more deeply about relevant topics and help build unity within our groups and service bodies. The IDTs for this cycle are Carrying the NA Message and Making NA Attractive, Attracting Members to Service, and Drug Replacement Therapy (DRT) and Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) and NA. Workshop material including Session outlines, PowerPoints, and handouts have been posted at That page also has a section with general discussion/workshop tools. Please send the results of your workshops to You can type up the responses and send them in or just send in pictures of the note sheets.

Membership Survey

Every three years, we conduct a membership survey to gather information about our Fellowship, in order to strengthen our public relations efforts and learn more about how and where we carry our message of recovery. The survey will be posted at until the end of the year. Please consider filling out the survey—which is anonymous—and forwarding the link to other members.

Spiritual Principle a Day Book Project

We need your help letting everyone know about our current book project. The book will explore a spiritual principle each day, in a similar style to the Just for Today daily meditation book. We just posted online forms as well as workshop materials for members to submit their writing. Check it out at and spread the word. Thank you for your service!

Yours in service,

World Board
