Need info from AA book for my son's sponsor MIA (missing in action) Plz. help!


Hello all!

This is quite an urgent request but if someone could please give me pg #(s) in the AA book, I do not have one of my own, that I could text to my son's (who is a heroine addict and poly-user in recovery right now) sponsor who was also a heroine addict. I believe his sponsor, who has been clean and sober, been in recovery for about one year and has several sponsees at this time one being my 25 yr. old son, has possibly gone MIA (missing in action) and I am trying to find encouraging info from the Big book to encourage and bless him at his low point. He has been such a strong influence in my son's life as well as a wonderful friend to me during this incredible journey of my son's recovery. His own sponsor has not heard from him in 2 weeks and I last heard from him almost one week ago (not like him at all), when he was directing me on how to help my son until he (sponsor) could get off work. He was going to call my son that night and never did. We haven't heard from him since. He has helped so many young men back to recovery and is such an inspiration to all who know him. We must help lift him up at a time he needs encouragement himself. So prayers for him would be greatly appreciated as well as help to find the right passages to give him. I've texted him that we are praying for him and I send him scriptures but he is such a strong believer in using the Big book as well as prayer in low times it could possibly be the tool God uses to bring him back and give Him the strength he needs. 

 

Thank you so very much and God bles you abundantly!!

Btw- what is the name of the text used for NA ? I'd like to try and locate one so I can look up the chapter and friend to send to my friend. I believe he was an alcoholic too so perhaps that's why he uses the Big Book. 

Thanks,

D

HI and welcome to the Miracles in progress Narcotics Anonymous message board.
In Narcotics Anonymous we do not use the AA 'Big Book' we have our own literature and it is a violation of our traditions to pubically endorse
material from a different fellowship.
That being said, our basic text has a chapter called 'recovery and relapse' it is chapter 7, the page number will vary depending on which
edition of the basic text you reference.
I certainly hope that your friend is alive and well.
Prayers for him and you and your entire family.

the book is called "Narcotics Anonymous Basic Text"
here is a link to the sixth edition. Over on the right of the page where it says "navigation" you can highlight the chapter you want.
