The Edmonton Area Narcotics Anonymous Public Relations Committee’s purpose is defined in the guidelines as…

Our purpose is based on NA’s 5th Tradition, “Each group has but one primary purpose – to carry the message to the addict who still suffers”. Everything we do in NA Service must be motivated by the desire to successfully carry the message of recovery – that an addict, any addict can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live. The Edmonton & Area Public Relation’s Committee is the working body for our combined group service efforts, and it is directly accountable to the ASC and the groups it represents in its actions, “The final responsibility and authority for NA Services rest with NA groups.” (2nd concept)


The Public Relations Committee carries the message of Narcotics Anonymous at public information events and panels in hospitals and institutions. We are always looking for members to be of service by speaking at these venues.

In order to represent the Public Relations Committee, a member must first attend the orientation. The orientation is held once a month, from 12 PM to 1 PM, typically on the first Sunday of the month, virtually through Zoom. Please see the Service Committee Schedule, under the Being of Service menu, for upcoming dates.
