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.
There are no strings attached to NA. We are not affiliated with any other organizations. We have no initiation fees or dues, no pledges to sign, no promises to make to anyone. We are not connected with any political, religious, or law enforcement groups, and are under no surveillance at any time. Anyone may join us regardless of age, race, sexual identity, creed, religion, or lack of religion.
We are not interested in what or how much you used or who your connections were, what you have done in the past, how much or how little you have, but only in what you want to do about your problem and how we can help. The newcomer is the most important person at any meeting, because we can only keep what we have by giving it away. We have learned from our group experience that those who keep coming to our meetings regularly stay clean.

The first meetings in what is now the Southeastern Family Area were originally part of the Lake Borderline Area. Shortly after the Wisconsin Region was formed, groups from the borderline area of Illinois that were located in Wisconsin formed the Southeastern Family Area and became part of the Wisconsin Region. In September of 1986 the first Area Service Committee was formed, with eleven groups represented in the initial meeting. At that time, the Southeastern Family Area included Kenosha, Racine and Walworth counties. SEFA currently consists of the cities and counties of Kenosha, Racine, and Walworth.
Southeastern Family Area members support Regional Subcommittees and are active at the Regional Service Conferences. They also support many other area functions to promote unity in Narcotics Anonymous. The Southeastern Family Area Public Information Subcommittee has produced policy and procedure documentation used by several other areas in the Region. In 1992 the Area initiated the Southeastern Family Area Information Phoneline, which continues to function smoothly today.
The Southeastern Family Area currently has several working subcommittees of the Area Service Committee. Southeastern Family Area has several meetings, with at least one scheduled each day of the week. Southeastern Family Area is as strong as it has ever been and continues to grow.
