IN TIMES OF ILLNESS
Newly revised to better reflect members’ experiences challenges such as mental health, chronic illness and pain. It now includes section summaries in the table of contents.
“The In Times of Illness booklet was approved by the World Service Conference in 1992. Since its publication, members throughout our fellowship have utilized this booklet as a resource when confronted with an illness or injury in recovery. The Fellowship of NA, the medical community, and the world are in a constant state of change. Through the years, many members found that the experience given in the booklet no longer met the needs of our growing fellowship. Workshops held worldwide indicated that members, collectively, wanted suggestions on dealing with issues such as mental health disorders, medication, and chronic illness in recovery. Our goal is to address these concerns and continue to carry our message to the addict who still suffers.” — excerpt from the Preface of the booklet “In Times of Illness” Copyright © 1992, 2010 by Narcotics Anonymous World Services, Inc.
