What Is Coquina Coast?
The Coquina Coast Area of Narcotics Anonymous consists of most all of the Flagler County, FL home groups, as well as some home groups from the Ormond Beach, and even some homegroups from St John’s County. Coquina Coast was once part of the Daytona Area of Narcotics Anonymous, but a growing number of members and geographic distances played a role in the decision to form a new area, and on November 11th, 2018 the Coquina Coast Area of Narcotics Anonymous was officially formed! The Coquina Coast current consists of home groups, offering a total of meetings per week.
Our goal is the same as that of any area, to support our homegroups and NA as a whole. In the words of NA’s Ninth Tradition, they “create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve.” And the service committee closest to home, the committee best situated to provide the most direct service to the groups and the community, is the area service committee.
Welcome to Narcotics Anonymous!
NA offers addicts a way to live drug-free. If you are not sure you’re an addict, don’t worry about it; just keep coming to our meetings. Most addicts experience very similar feelings, and it is in focusing on our similarities, rather than our differences, that we are helpful to one another. “The therapeutic value of one addict helping another is without parallel.”
Who is an addict?
Most of us do not have to think twice about this question. We know! Our whole life and thinking was centered in drugs in one form or another—the getting and using and finding ways and means to get more. We lived to use and used to live. Very simply, an addict is a man or woman whose life is controlled by drugs. We are people in the grip of a continuing and progressive illness whose ends are always the same: jails, institutions, and death.
What Is Narcotics Anonymous?
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.
