PURPOSE
The purpose of the Arkansas Regional Service Committee of Narcotics Anonymous (ARSCNA) is to be supportive of its member Areas and Groups and their primary purpose of carrying the Narcotics Anonymous message to the addict who still suffers. This is achieved by associating the Areas and Groups within its geographical boundaries and to serve as a communication link between them. The ARSCNA also exists to assist its member Areas and Loner Groups with situations and needs outside the scope of their experience and to provide identified services on a statewide basis. Through all of this, the Arkansas Regional Service Committee encourages the growth of the Fellowship of Narcotics Anonymous. Although the Arkansas Regional Service Committee members may offer experience, strength, and hope as well as suggestions, the ARSCNA does not have binding authority over the decisions or activities of any Areas or any Groups.
