The purpose of this website is to provide up-to-date information about the ABCD region and to further carry the NA message. The ABCD Region serves a large geographic area that is stretched over four states: New York, Massachusetts, Vermont and New Hampshire. The areas that we serve are: The Albany Rennsselaer Area, Mohawk River Area, Mid-Hudson Area, Berkshire County Area, Green Mountain Area, and the Southern Adirondack Mountains Miracle Area.

We have had many inquiries and questions about health concerns regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). While it is not our role to make statements regarding health issues, we encourage NA groups to discuss the situations you are facing and the options you have to provide safe environments for those who attend your meetings. Groups may want to consider asking members to temporarily stop some of the common practices found at NA meetings such as hugging or shaking hands, or offering refreshments. You may also want to consider alternatives to “circling up” at the end of the meeting. - NA World Service

A message from our Regional Chair:
We are working on getting in touch with all of the Area secretaries within our region, as well as GSR's to implement some suggestions regarding simple safety precautions. Hand sanitizer, a disinfectant used to clean meeting areas, spacing members apart and emphasizing in all groups clarity statements the importance of self-care. The disease of addiction is mental, emotional, spiritual as well as physical. This current virus attacks all realms of being and does not discriminate. We have to be vigilant to pursue our personal recovery.

Also, we need to explore all available options, telephonic communication, online meetings as well as setting up group meetings via telephone with the various apps. available.
