Young Addicts In Recovery
Young Addicts in Recovery is an EDM Fellowship Development workgroup that started in 2016. This is a passion project of many EDM servants regardless of age. We started to notice amazing recovery activities organized by young people all over the world, and their message touched us very deeply:
“It’s never too early to start recovering in the program of Narcotics Anonymous”.
Our focus is on informing, and connecting young addicts all over the globe, helping to gather and exchange their experience – what helped them stay in the rooms of NA and helped focus on our similarities and not differences, what specific challenges they had to overcome and what motivates members to get involved in service.
We were trying to find what makes the process of identification easier – tools like Young Addicts Meetings, Youth Conventions, After meetings, and Fellowshipping Activities. And our ultimate goal is to carry the message to any addict who suffers, regardless of her/his race, sex, AGE, creed, religion or lack of it.
Even though our workgroup always talks about “Young at Heart” the e-book project was made to focus more on younger NA members. We were looking primarily for stories from members that got clean under 26 years of age. The reason is that younger and younger addicts are coming in the rooms all around the world and staying clean.
We have collected some stories and share them with you.
