THE TWELVE TRADITIONS OF NAR-ANON FAMILY GROUPS

Our group experience suggests that the unity of the Nar-Anon Family Groups depends upon our adherence to these traditions.

 

1. Our common welfare should come first; personal progress for the greatest number depends on unity.

2. For our group purposes there is but one authority – a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience. Our leaders are but trusted servants – they do not govern.

3. The relatives of addicts, when gathered for mutual aid, may call themselves a Nar-Anon Family Group, provided that as a group, they have no other affiliation. The only requirement for membership is that there be a problem of addiction in a relative or friend.

4. Each group should be autonomous except in matters affecting other Nar-Anon Family Groups, or N.A. as a whole.

5. Each Nar-Anon Family Group has but one purpose; to help families of addicts. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps of Nar-Anon, by encouraging and understanding our addicted relatives, and by welcoming and giving comfort to families of addicts.

6. Our Family Groups ought never to endorse, finance or lend our name to any outside enterprise, lest problems of money, property and prestige divert us from our primary spiritual aim; but although a separate entity, we should always cooperate with Narcotics Anonymous.

7. Every group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.

8. Nar-Anon Twelfth Step work should remain forever non-professional, but our service centres may employ special workers.

9. Our groups, as such, ought never to be organized, but we may create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve.

10. The Nar-Anon Family Groups have no opinion on outside issues; hence our name ought never to be drawn into public controversy.

11. Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, films, internet, and other forms of mass media. We need guard with special care the anonymity of all N.A. members.

12. Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of all our traditions, ever reminding us to place principles above personalities.
