Event description

Description

"The first Narcotics Anonymous meeting took place in Canada in late September of 1967. It was in Victoria, British Columbia that James D. and Bernard A. began meeting weekly to help each other stay clean. The late 1960's were a time of struggle for the fellowship and in 1967 there were only 15 meetings world wide, with most of them occurring in California. Although the attendance at the Victoria meetings fluctuated, and the locations often changed, by the early 1970's the fellowship had begun to stabilize and it was in 1973 that the The Victoria Area Service committee formed."
