The aim of an area service committee (ASC) is to coordinate services on behalf of the groups served by that area. In essence, an area is the way in which all groups join together in an effort to further NA’s primary purpose—to make our message of recovery available and accessible to everyone in their community. The WSO offers a free document called The Area Planning Tool. To view this document, or download, please click on the following link:

The Greater Philadelphia region has 14 areas that it serves. Each area has a monthly “Area Service Meeting” which serves the group needs within each area. For more information on each area including ASC meeting dates, locations, and contact information, click on the appropriate link below.
