ACME MEDITATION (NOA)
*NAMES OF INSTITUTIONS
These are the names of the institutions where meetings are located. The name is listed only as a reference. NA is not affiliated with any institution or organization and pays rent for all meeting space.
These meetings are for individuals concerned about their own personal problems with drugs (including alcohol). If you are a family member or other interested party, please attend any open meeting. All meetings are open, unless marked as closed.
***GENDER BASED MEETINGS
We also have meetings that specifically address staying clean with a focus on gender related topics. This can include meetings for cisgender men, cisgender women or LGBTQ-inclusive and gender nonconforming persons, (transgender, transsexual, lesbian, gay, non-binary, etc.) Each group will notate its focus. No one is turned away, but these meetings may veer toward discussing problems and solutions in recovery with a focus on gender.
Meetings in the metro area may join one of two NA Service Committees for organizational support. We designate these affiliations as follows:
NOA = New Orleans Area Service Committee
UA = Unity Area Service Committee
IM = Independent Meeting. Not affiliated with any service committee, but uses “The 12 Traditions of NA” as their operating principles.
