Issue Discussions

Issue Discussion Topics are subjects that recovering addicts in NA communities around the world focus on in discussions and workshops throughout each two-year conference cycle. These conversations encourage us to think more deeply about relevant topics and help build unity within our groups and service bodies. In addition, sending the results of your discussions to the World Board can help shape Fellowshipwide resources and services.

Service System: If you are from a region or area that is trying some of the ideas from the Service System Project, or you are discussing how they might work and you want to try lifting some of the ideas off of the drawing board with us, we encourage you to contact world services if you haven’t already done so. For more information on this project see the service system page.
