The Blue Ridge Area of Narcotics Anonymous takes its name from the mountain range that forms its eastern border and the worldwide fellowship of recovering addicts. When the NA groups began to organize in the early 1980s, the area included most of the state west of Richmond. As more groups formed their own local service structures, BRANA evolved into a five-county area in the central Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.

As part of the worldwide fellowship of Narcotics Anonymous, we are affiliated with the Central Atlantic Region of Narcotics Anonymous and NA World Services

The Central Atlantic Region provides an overview of its member areas, a statewide meeting schedule, and an events calendar. NAWS offers an international meeting search, an online store to purchase literature and recovery-related products, along with a wealth of support materials for NA groups and areas. 

About NA

NA is a nonprofit fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had become a major problem. We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean. This is a program of complete abstinence from all drugs. There is only one requirement for membership, the desire to stop using. We suggest that you keep an open mind and give yourself a break. Our program is a set of principles written so simply that we can follow them in our daily lives. The most important thing about them is that they work. (more)
