NA groups are encouraged to be represented at the monthly Area Service Committee meeting by a Group Service Representative (G.S.R.)


Public Relations
The purpose of the Public Relations Subcommittee is to serve as the link between NA and the general public. The subcommittee will be responsible for establishing contact with all organizations, agencies, educational institutions, businesses, groups or individuals who, through their contact with active drug users and/or the general public, can help to create awareness of NA, its program, purpose, and availability.

The Phoneline Subcommittee, at the area level, establishes, maintains and coordinates an effective 24-hour, seven day a week answering service. Volunteers must attend business meeting and orientation.

Hospitals & Institutions Subcommittee.
The Portland Area Hospitals and Institutions Subcommittee exists to carry the message of recovery from addiction to facilities whose residents are restricted from full access to regular Narcotics Anonymous meetings.

Activities Subcommittee
The Activities Subcommittee coordinates and plans activities, which promote unity and fellowship in the NA program.

Outreach Subcommittee
The main purpose of the Outreach Subcommittee is to promote unity and to overcome isolation among individual groups. Outreach can offer assistance to NA groups struggling with lack of experience or information, cultural differences and difficulties arising from internal controversy.

Literature Subcommittee
The purpose of the Literature Subcommittee is to maintain an adequate supply of Narcotics Anonymous literature and related recovery products to meet the needs of the Portland Area fellowship, and to provide these materials for purchase at our monthly Area Service Committee meeting.
