Narcotics Anonymous IRAN

I R A N - We recently spoke with Iran and they shared that they just had the opening meeting at their convention, with 12,000 people in attendance. The meeting was held in a Tehran sports stadium where they read a greeting from NAWS and the Iranian president before an official “kick-off” with five speakers—three recovery shares, one on the traditions and one on PI. Members from Bahrain attended in support of the convention. They also sent us photos of a trophy and an award they received a few weeks ago when they were named the most successful Non-Government Organization (NGO) of the year in Iran. They will be sending us a full article for the NA Way Magazine. We are very excited to hear all about the rest of their convention and what is happening in Iran.
