Service Guides

The Nar-Anon Family Groups’ Guide to Local Services is for fellowship members who have found the personal growth and continuous recovery that comes from taking an active role in the Nar-Anon program. The NFG Guide to Local Services can serve as a vehicle to the many ways Nar-Anon members can be of service to the fellowship. Service is a wonderful way to give back to the program for the peace and serenity members receive when using the tools of Nar-Anon.

While Tradition Nine states in part, “Our groups as such, ought never to be organized,” it does suggest that an orderly structure and reasonable procedures will make it possible for Nar-Anon to carry the message with maximum effectiveness.

This guide is a resource to those in every country committing themselves to providing services necessary to carry the message to the families and friends of addicts. For further information concerning local adjustments to the NFG Guide to Local Services, contact Nar-Anon WSO.

Fellowship Review

The 2016 WSC approved a review process which allows for fellowship input on service and outreach materials labeled as “Fellowship Review”. These materials can be changed based on input from the fellowship within the traditions and principles of Nar-Anon.  Suggested changes to fellowship review materials should be sent to This may reduce the number of motions to amend materials after they have received conference approval and also allows for input before getting conference approval.   This process does not include recovery literature or materials already stamped conference approved.  Recovery and CAL materials require motions to be changed.
