WHAT IS HEROIN ANONYMOUS
Heroin Anonymous is a non-profit fellowship of men and women who have found a solution to heroin addiction. This is a program of complete abstinence from all drugs. We are recovered heroin addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay sober.
The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop suffering from heroin addiction. There are no dues or fees for H.A. membership; we are self supporting through our own contributions. H.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other heroin addicts achieve sobriety.
Heroin Anonymous is concerned solely with the personal recovery and continued sobriety of heroin addicts who turn to our Fellowship for help. We do not provide drug education, therapy, medical or psychiatric treatment, chemical dependency treatment, drug addiction research, or propaganda of any form.
Our members consist of individuals who have found a better way of life. We have recovered from our heroin addiction and simply wish to offer help to all of those who suffer. We are fully self – supporting, we accept voluntary contributions from our members for our expenses, and we respectfully decline outside contributions.
Our Program of Recovery was adapted from the program developed by Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935. We apply the Twelve Steps as done in A.A. (which we are not affiliated), which involves one heroin addict helping another to achieve freedom from their heroin addiction.
We find that individuals who have recovered from their heroin addiction can offer understanding, compassion, relatedness, fellowship, and direction where other methods may have failed. In our Fellowship you will see one heroin addict helping another, freely passing on their experience to the next person who is desperately searching for an answer to their own heroin addiction.
