“What is our message? The message is than an addict, any addict, can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live. Our message is hope and the promise of freedom. When all is said and done, our primary purpose can only be to carry the message to the addict who still suffers because that is all we have to give.”

Welcome to the Lane County Area of Narcotics Anonymous,
The purpose of this web page is to bring an awareness of the Fellowship of Narcotics Anonymous to the community. We hope to create an understanding of our fellowship so that you feel our program may be of benefit to you, or the people you care about. In this you will know how to contact us for further information. Narcotics Anonymous is a non-profit fellowship of men and women for whom drugs have become a problem. We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay clean. This is a program of complete abstinence from all drugs. Our fellowship is concerned with the disease of addiction and recovery from that disease; the drug (or drugs) of choice is unimportant.
Narcotics Anonymous is a world-wide fellowship made up of groups that form areas and in turn form regions. This site belongs to the groups that are part of the Lane County Area. The Lane County Area’s geographic location is all of Lane County. We are part of the Pacific Cascade Region which is Oregon and a small part of northern California. There are thirty plus meetings in the Lane County Area in the cities of Eugene, Springfield, Cottage Grove, Creswell and Florence.
Our primary purpose is to carry the message of recovery to the addict who still suffers. In order to achieve this we maintain a 24-hour helpline that volunteers operate to answer questions and help addicts find meetings. That number is (541) 729-0080. We may also be reached at LCASC PO Box 262 Eugene, OR 97440.
Our Area service committee is divided into subcommittees that reach out to addicts in a variety of ways and serve the Lane County Area groups. For more information on this please look at the member pages under the ASC link.
