WHAT ABOUT NEWCOMER PACKAGES AT FRCNA?
FRCNA is a paid event, rather than an NA meeting. With that being said, there is no such thing as an indigent package, a partial payment, or a donation option.
Individual members of our fellowship contribute to newcomer packages when they pre-register or register on site. A newcomer is defined as a member of Narcotics Anonymous with 90 days or less.
Treatment Centers are encouraged to reach out to the Registration committee via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be able to discuss options to facilitate the registration process for the entire group.
Meeting schedules for local meetings as well as onsite marathon meetings will be available for those who won't be attending FRCNA, a paid event.
