UKNA

Need help with problem usage, dependence, or addiction to prescription drugs, valium, nurofen, MSJ’s, painkillers, or any type of drug eg heroin, cocaine, crack, speed, MDMA, cannabis or any party drugs – NA can help.

NA looks at the disease of addiction and treats the root cause which centers in our minds.

“Through NA I gained peace of mind, I found happiness and became content in life for the first time regardless of material possessions, how much money I had, or what was going on around me.

I learned in recovery that happiness is an inside job, and free for anyone who is willing to find a new way of life.

Through NA I gained a bridge to normal living and was able to be rehabilitated in the community – through the help of people who had recovered from addiction themselves.”
