“The only alternatives to recovery are jails, institutions, dereliction, and death. Unfortunately, our disease makes us deny our addiction. If you are an addict, you can find a new way of life through the NA Program. Through abstinence and through working the Twelve Steps of Narcotics Anonymous, our lives have become useful.” (Basic Text 6th edition pg. 8).
“Tradition 5 – Each group has but one primary purpose— to carry the message to the addict who still suffers.”
What is our message?
The message is that an addict, any addict, can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live. Our message is hope and the promise of freedom. When all is said and done, our primary purpose can only be to carry the message to the addict who still suffers because that is all we have to give.
It is with this purpose that the Sierra Sage Region of Narcotics Anonymous began our “Behind The Walls Sponsorship” program. The program is designed to protect the anonymity of our members while providing temporary sponsorship to those who are currently incarcerated as a result of their disease of addiction and who desire to begin working the 12 Steps of Narcotics Anonymous. Please click on any of the links located below for more information on how this program works. If you would like more information, or if you are interested in becoming a temporary sponsor for an addict who is currently in need and incarcerated, please fill out our request form at the bottom of this page.
