Heroin Anonymous is a non-profit fellowship of men and women who have found a solution to heroin addiction. H.A. is a fellowship of complete abstinence from all drugs and alcohol. We are recovered heroin addicts who meet regularly to help each other stay sober. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop suffering from addiction. There are no dues or fees for H.A. membership. H.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy and neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other heroin addicts to achieve sobriety.

Heroin Anonymous is concerned solely with the personal recovery and continued sobriety of addicts who turn to us for help. We do not provide drug counseling, medical or psychiatric treatment, chemical dependency treatment, or therapy of any form. Our members consist of individuals who have found a better way of life. We have recovered from our heroin addiction and simply wish to offer help to those who suffer. We are fully self-supporting, we accept voluntary contributions from our members for our expenses, and we respectfully decline outside contributions. Our program of recovery was adapted from the program developed by Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935. We apply the Twelve Steps as done in AA (although we are not affiliated with Alcoholics Anonymous), which involves one heroin addict helping another to achieve freedom from their heroin addiction.

In our Fellowship you will see one heroin addict helping another, freely passing on their experience to the next person who is desperately searching for an answer to their own heroin addiction.

Ever since, H.A. has grown into a fellowship that spans multiple countries. Thousands of heroin addicts have found sobriety, started new meetings in new places, with new ideas and perspectives. International dialogue is taking place via correspondence, and the fellowship is finding its footing and coming to know itself. Our membership represents a fair cross-section of the population, demonstrating the fact that recovery is available to all, and that we have found a way out that works!
