Narcotics Anonymous 2018
Regional Convention
Aotearoa New Zealand


'In All Our Affairs'

19 - 21 October 2018

Labour Weekend
Waitangi, Bay of Islands


In All Our Affairs

While our focus is always recovery from drug addiction, our members often share how this disease affects many other areas of their lives. Food, work, sex, money, screen addiction to name a few. This theme offers an opportunity to reflect on all that is addiction and it's prevalence in all our affairs.


Waitangi is a place of spiritual, cultural and political significance for all New Zealanders. The location gives us all an opportunity to contemplate the significant place NA has forged in the cultural landscape of Aotearoa and acknowledge the role the Treaty of Waitangi has played in the development of modern New Zealand.




The 2018 Convention will kick off in a pretty traditional fashion with the Powhiri. This year the Powhiri will be held on the Waitangi Treaty Grounds in front of the Whare Runanga. Hope to see you there.


While you can conveniently stay on site at the Copthorne Hotel, there are many other options available in and around Paihia – from the campground and backpackers to AirBnB to 5 star options. Something for all budgets and tastes.


It's a wee way to Paihia from pretty much anywhere. With that in mind, various transport options will be available to both those in Auckland needing help and those travelling from further afield.
