This is a program of complete abstinence form 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 life. The most important thing about them is that they work.
Don't use and go to meetings. Come early and stay late. Ask for and use phone numbers. Avoid people, places and things you used with and/or at. Join a home group. Keep coming back - it works!
