Group reports

Hello from Monday morning at Riverpark! We have been going in on time in a panel of 3-4 members.  We carry

a clear message of Narcotics Anonymous.  We begin and end on time, come and leave as a group, and the

clients at the facility have been very receptive. Willingness has been good for Monday mornings. 

Very grateful to be of service,

Sarah W

The Monday morning 10:30AM Adult Short-term H&I panel at Riverpark is effective and awesome. The

message is being carried and willingness is sufficient. We average about 6-8 clients in attendance each week.

Some are more attentive than others, some are detoxing still. We focus on JFT topics and read out of the basic

text. There is a need for this panel and our service is appreciated at this facility.

Thanks for allowing me to serve alongside you,

Nick C.

Greetings from the Pinecrest women's facility. Meetings have been going in on time and

together. The lifesaving message of NA has been shared. The women’s are extremely attentive

and open-minded to the panel. Willingness has been fabulous. I could use some schedules.

Grateful to serve, Kristen s

Greetings from River Park Adolescent Long Term! We are entering and leaving as a group on time. The clear

lifesaving message of narcotics anonymous is shared and the kids are super receptive! Thank you for letting

me serve,

Janice H

Greetings from the St. Mary's psych ward panel 

All is well. We have been there in time consistently, however, we have been about 5 minutes late starting due

to the facility wrapping up visitation. We have still been ending on time. Willingness remains stellar, to the point

where I have to schedule people weeks ahead of time. A clear consistent Narcotics Anonymous message is

being carried. I would like to request a few IPs, as the ones I had have been taken by facility residents.

Grateful to be of service, Josh A.

10-16- 16

Greetings, from Pinecrest female meeting of hospitals and institutions. We have been opening and closing on

time. Willingness is alright.  We go in together and leave together. The residents continue to respectfully listen

and share. The staff is chill. The lifesaving message of narcotics anonymous is being shared.

Thanks

Greetings from the Peace of Mind homegroup of NA. We are averaging about 10-15 ppl each week, but women tends to be low, I think bc of the Pinecrest H&I panel, which is great.
