Welcome to the Central Washington Area

Narcotics Anonymous is a non-profit fellowship of people who suffer from the disease of addiction. We meet on a regular basis to help each other stay clean and share our experience, strength, and hope. If you think you might have a drug problem, please call our Helpline, or come to one of our meetings. We can only help those who are willing to help themselves.

The Central Washington Area is comprised of several counties in Washington State: Grant, Kittitas, and Yakima. The larger communities are Ellensburg, Cle Elum, Moses Lake and Yakima. We are part of the Washington Northern Idaho Region of Narcotics Anonymous and the World Wide Fellowship of Narcotics Anonymous.
