San Jose, California
Our Sixth Tradition states: "An NA group ought never endorse, finance, or lend the NA name to any related facility or outside enterprise, lest problems of money, property, or prestige divert us from our primary purpose." And, our primary purpose is defined by the Fifth Tradition: "Each group has but one primary purpose--- to carry the message to the addict who still suffers." *
This is exactly what Wild Recovery is about.
Links offered on this page are to entities outside Narcotics Anonymous, and NA has no connection with, or control over, their content. We offer them, in the spirit of cooperation but not affiliation, because they have valuable information for our members about the parks and open space preserves where we hold our meetings.
Information at these sites will answer such questions as, "Can I bring my dog or ride my mountain bike?" "Can I smoke at this park?" "How much does parking cost?" "How do I get there?" "In case of an emergency, how can I get help?" "Does the park offer access for people with disabilities?" Park closures because of fire, weather conditions, or construction are hardly unknown in California, so it can pay to find out first before making a long trip.
Bottom line: we don't want our members to have problems because they lack information, and we want to know the parks' rules so we'll continue to be welcome guests there.
Many of these sites have excellent trail maps, and offer valuable and interesting information about the parks and open space district lands. However, when you access these sites you should realize that you are leaving the NA and Wild Recovery sites, and it is important to understand that Narcotics Anonymous does not endorse, finance, lend the NA name, nor offer an opinion about any outside causes or enterprises. These links are offered as information resources, not as endorsement.
In utilizing external links, we try to follow the very sensible example of the NA World Service website, to assist our members in gaining access to necessary online resources while being careful not to confuse our identity with other organizations or enterprises.
