Written by addicts, for addicts. | The Fix
Written by addicts, for addicts. | The Fix: From the ashes of early attempts to develop a 12-Step program for addicts, Narcotics Anonymous arose in the 1950’s and survived by adapting what had worked for Alcoholics Anonymous and alcoholics. Narcotics Anonymous grew in a similar manner, but the focus was on the disease of addiction, with less emphasis on the substances that were habit forming. What had worked for alcoholics might work for addicts was the theory; that proved true.
