Service Pamphlets
Home > Services to Members > Service Pamphlets

Service pamphlets (SPís) are intended for use as a resource for groups and service bodies. The World Board was directed by a motion at WSC 2006 to develop service related pamphlets for use by the fellowship. Service pamphlets are not intended to be recovery literature or to be used as the basis of a topic during a recovery meeting. They are intended for help in your discussion in group business meetings or in service committees. They are our best attempt at collecting some of the more successful practices in our fellowship in dealing with sensitive or difficult topics. They are similar to what has been previously been released as NAWS Bulletins and should be treated in much the same way.

They are easily adaptable by NA World Services so we welcome and invite your input and ideas. They are intended to be one more tool to assist us all in our efforts to carry the message to the addict who still suffers.

Service Reading

Everything that occurs in the course of N.A. service must be motivated by the desire to more successfully carry the message of recovery to the addict who still suffers. It was for this reason that we began this work. We must always remember that as individual members, groups and service committees, we are not and should never be in competition with each other. We work separately and together to help the newcomer and for our common good. We have learned, painfully, that internal strife cripples our Fellowship; it prevents us from providing the service necessary for growth.
