  • Straight and Narrow Clients and Staff receive AA Big Books and NA Basic Text

    Joseph F. Duffy, executive director of Straight and Narrow and president of Catholic Charities in the Diocese of Paterson, assists as Donna Berkery, Straight and Narrow substance abuse counselor, inscribes the names of clients to receive as a gift from the clients’ counselors at Straight and Narrow, the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Big book or the Narcotics Anonymous (NA) Basic text as a resource for clients at Straight and Narrow. A third publica tion,“The Twelve Steps Unplugged,” which is geared to a younger population was presented to the clients in the residential adolescent program.

    Founded in 1954, Straight and Narrow in Paterson is the largest comprehensive alcohol and other drugs of abuse treatment agency in the state. These books were purchased from donations. Duffy indicated that Straight and Narrow will rely on future donations to replenish the supply of these books and other 12 step resource materials. He also asks that anyone with gently used NA or AA 12 step materials can donate them by calling the pastoral care and development office at (973) 345-6000 ext. 6213.
