Service and Committees

Service in Narcotics Anonymous

Narcotics Anonymous in South Africa has an service environment active across the country. We have a full complement of local service structures including hospitals & institutions, public relations and our phoneline which all help to fulfil our primary purpose – to carry the message of recovery to the addict that still suffers.

To assist with this, NA in South Africa has a number of active Area Service Committees (ASCs), and a Regional Service Committee (RSC). For more information on the service structure of Narcotics Anonymous, see the official guide to local service.

The full range of service documentation is available on the Narcotics Anonymous world website, including:
