    Davina McCall Talks about Narcotics Anonymous Television presenter and host Davina McCall says that Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings have helped in her sustained sobriety over the years. The channel 4 “The Jump” host found recovery from heroin addiction when she was still in her twenties. Davina began using drugs when she was a teen. According to an article in the Daily Mail she revealed that her drug of choice was heroin. It was Narcotics Anonymous meetings, McCall says, that first helped her when she was in early recovery. She says that to this day, she goes to meetings in the London, England area “at least once a month.”

    She credits the anonymous meetings with offering her a lot of support in her sobriety over the years. Davina said in an interview with The Mirror that it has been very helpful to speak with other people in meetings who have gone through similar situations. “It’s a place where people get help and support. I get a lot from it.” McCall said.

    In her continued sobriety the television personality engages in other activities that aid in her wellness. Most recently she competed in a Sport Relief challenge which included “cycling, swimming and running 500 miles from Edinburgh to London in seven days.” McCall was applauded by the public despite her fall during the challenge. She persevered and continued even though the challenge was a struggle for her.

    If you or someone you love is looking for a local Narcotics Anonymous group you can find one at https://www.na.org/meetingsearch/. There are meetings that take place all across the United States and all around the world. The group atmosphere provides assistance from peers and is grounded in the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. Members can take solace in the fact that any information that is shared at these meetings is never repeated. This allows participants to share at a level that is deeper because of the anonymity that is maintained. We hope that a Narcotics Anonymous, NA, group can help you just as it is has the many others before McCall. A woman’s maintenance of sobriety is an integral part of the recovery process. At New Directions for Women we have several on campus 12 Step meetings that are open to the community, and all of our patients attend multiple 12 Step meetings every week with staff supervision.
