Badgerland Area Service Committee (BASC)
The purpose of the Badgerland Area Service Committee (BASC) is to administer and coordinate the business common to the welfare of Narcotics Anonymous (NA) groups within the geographic boundaries of the Badgerland Area; to support the needs of these groups; to serve as a link between these groups and the Wisconsin Regional Service Committee (WRSC) of NA and to form subcommittees (SCs) as needed. In addition BASC supports these SCs in their endeavors and fosters unity as guided by the Twelve Traditions of Narcotics Anonymous.
The BASC meets once a month to serve the needs of its groups by conducting BASC business. An NA group supports the BASC through participation and donations. Whenever a group has a specific problem it can come to the Area meeting for guidance. Active participation from each GSR is essential for a successful BASC.
Hospitals and Institutions
The purpose of H&I is to carry the Narcotics Anonymous message to addicts who do not have access to NA meetings otherwise. We have found this type of service to be very meaningful and an asset to our recovery. We currently take meetings to addicts in:
- Dane, Rock, Iowa and Jefferson County Jails
- Tellurian UCAN/Dane County Detox
- Oakhill Correctional Facility in Oregon
All addicts interested in working with other addicts behind bars, in detox, or in other institutions, please attend a subcommittee meeting, or speak to other addicts in our Fellowship who you know do this work, or contact us at email@example.com.
The Activities subcommittee organizes fellowship gatherings that help provide a greater sense of unity and community throughout the Badgerland Area. We strive to provide all addicts an opportunity to have fun in recovery within a safe environment while also fulfilling our primary purpose of carrying the NA message. Any member of Narcotics Anonymous may become a member of Activities, there is no clean time requirement. We organize: Picnics, Dances, Speakers Meetings, Pancake breakfasts, & more! We’re always looking for new ideas and people to help staff our events. Recovery can be fun!
For professionals and anyone interested in Narcotics Anonymous. Narcotics Anonymous is a nonprofit 12 step recovery program. Badgerland Area of Narcotics Anonymous and the NA Groups we serve in Madison, Stoughton, Evansville, Whitewater, Janesville, Beloit, and Ft. Atkinson are a resource in the community.
The main purpose of outreach is to help overcome the isolation that hinders the growth and survival of groups. This committees also help groups to enhance their ability to carry a message of recovery through greater knowledge of and exposure to.the NA service structure. It is one way our fellowship has been able to spread from city to city and country to country.
