The message of Narcotics Anonymous had entered into Dharan in around 1999. The message was brought into by few members who got clean in Kathmandu. They formed a home group named Mukti and started running meetings for the first time in this region. As the message of NA stated spared in nearby places like Itahari, Damak, Birtamod, members started meeting there also. The groups then realized the need of an Area Service Committee to unite and help them better carry the message of Narcotics Anonymous. The NA home groups formed Dharan Area Service Committee in 2002 aiming to help groups carry the message of NA to the addict who still suffer. Ever since the formation of the Dharan ASC, it regularly carried out different activities which help home groups carry the NA message.
Dharan ASC now provides services to the groups of Dharan, Itahari, Biratnagar, Kerabari. It has various service sub-committees who regularly hold different types of activities to carry the message of NA within the area.
