CMA Meeting Directory

For most of us, our first connection with CMA was at a meeting of Crystal Meth Anonymous. A meeting usually takes place at a specific time and place where two or more addicts come together for the purpose of recovery. In contrast to a meeting, a CMA group is a spiritual entity that exists beyond the specific time and place of the meeting for the purpose of carrying the message to the addict who still suffers. Regular meetings are encouraged to list their meeting time and place on local and national meeting lists. Groups are encouraged to register with CMA World Services and elect service representatives to the Area Assembly. 

Whenever two or more crystal meth addicts come together for the purpose of recovery they can form a CMA group — providing that, as a group, they have no other affiliation. Each group's primary purpose should be to carry the message to the addict who still suffers. By Tradition, each group is autonomous, conducting itself as its members see fit, provided that its actions do not impact other groups or the CMA Fellowship as a whole. CMA does not govern individual meetings, instead relying upon the spiritual principles outlined in our Twelve Traditions and Traditions Concepts to guide each group's actions. 

Being of Service in CMA

Are you currently a sober and clean member of Crystal Meth Anonymous and looking for a little more -- something? Come and 'Be of Service' at a CMA meeting or at the Group / Area / or Intergroup level. At the group level, CMA members can share the word of hope and recovery. At the area or Intergroup level you can be of service the CMA community at large.

A team of recovering crystal meth addicts can make a CMA meeting both fulfilling and so that it will grow and offer support and assistance to other recovering crystal meth addicts.
  • CMA meetings need a Secretary. The Secretary is responsible for the overall running of the meeting. He/she selects the Speaker and Leader each week. Are you a CMA meeting Secretary? Have you listed your meeting?
  • If the meeting has more than say 5 or 6 members that attend on a regular basis, the meeting should have a treasurer.
  • A Literature person to handle CMA literature, brochures and such stuff.
  • A Chip/Cake person presents the chips at the end of the meeting and presents a cake for anyone celebrating a sober/clean anniversary.
  • A Greeter at the door before the meeting starts to welcome everyone to the meeting and help new folks at the door.
  • A Cleanup person who is in charge of making sure the room is left the way you found it (or better) before the meeting started.
  • Some of our groups have a Sponsor/Matchmaker who keeps track of those people willing to be of service as a temporary sponsor until the newcomer chooses a permanent sponsor.
  • A GSR (General Services Representative) who represents the interests of the meeting at the Area and General Services Committee levels.
