Behind The Walls Sponsorship


Our primary purpose is to provide a sponsor to work the Twelve Steps of Narcotics Anonymous to those people who are incarcerated in an institution, and are not able to meet potential sponsors at local N.A. meetings. Our interactions will only be via mail, not by telephone or visitation. Our mission is to ensure that any addict seeking recovery through a working knowledge of the Twelve Steps of Narcotics Anonymous, has the opportunity to do so even in an institution.

There are many addicts seeking recovery that are looking for sponsors. Since they are unable to attend meetings on the outside this program is a vital tool in helping to bring the message of Narcotics Anonymous to those individuals.
