Your Role as Helper:

  • not to DO things for the person you are helping, but to BE things,
  • not to try to train and change the addict’s actions, but to train and change your reactions,
  • to change your negatives to positives,
  • to change fear to faith,
  • to change contempt for what the addict does to respect for the potential within the addict,
  • to change rejection to release with love,
  • to try not to make the addict fit a standard or image or expect him/her to measure up to or down from that standard, but to give the addict an opportunity to become themselves,
  • to develop the best within the addict, regardless of what that best may be,
  • to change dominance to encouragement,
  • to change panic to serenity,
  • to change false-hope, self-centred to real hope, Higher Power-centred,
  • to change the rebellion of despair to the energy of personal revolution,
  • to change driving to guidance,
  • to change self-justification to self-understanding.

Through working the Nar-Anon program we change in ways such as these, allowing us to change the world about us and all the people in our world for the better.


“Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you’ll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others.”

Jacob M. Braude
