KZN Area Service Committee

Subcommittees

Tradition 9 states “NA, as such, ought never be organized, but we may create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve.”

The ASC subcommittees have been created to serve both NA members and the still suffering addict. The subcommittees cover everything from Public Relations and Events to Fellowship Development and Phone Line.

ASC Chair

The ASC Chair is responsible for conducting committee meetings, preparing the agenda, and various administrative duties.

The Chair can find additional help in books about business meetings, decision-making processes, and volunteer organisations that are often readily available at local bookstores and libraries.

Phone Line

An NA telephone number helps addicts seeking recovery to find us and our non-addict friends to get more information on the NA programme. The Phone Line Subcommittee maintains a telephone information service for Narcotics Anonymous that helps addicts and others in the community find us easily and quickly. Phoneline volunteers often serve as the first point of contact between the community-at-large and the NA Fellowship.

Hospitals + Institutions

The H+I Subcommittee carries the NA message to addicts who often have no other way of hearing it. H+I service is conducted at addiction treatment centres, mental health facilities and prisons. H+I Subcommittee responsibilities sometimes overlap those of the PR Subcommittee. For this reason, we encourage H+I and PR Subcommittees to closely cooperate with one another.

Secretary

Public Relations

The PR Subcommittee’s responsibility is to inform addicts and others in the community of the availability of recovery in Narcotics Anonymous. Services provided by PR Subcommittees vary widely from area to area. The simplest kind of PR project is the production and distribution of flyers throughout the community announcing that NA is available and that more information can be had either by calling the local NA phoneline or by attending an NA meeting. PR often conduct public meetings for community members, distribute public service announcements to local radio and television stations, and respond to public media inquiries.

In this way, the groups can share their experience with one another, make decisions together regarding questions that affect them all, and combine their strength in reaching out to the community around them.
