Service in CMA

"CMA, as such, ought never be organized; but we may create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve. – Tradition Nine"

Crystal Meth Anonymous is primarily a spiritual entity concerned with carrying the message of recovery, but it is also an incorporated, non-profit organization which must comply with state and federal laws. Our service structure is designed to balance these two roles while expressing the group conscience of the Fellowship of Crystal Meth Anonymous.

For a complete explanation of our service structure, members are encouraged to read our Service Manual. We have included a few resources and information here for members of individual groups and those involved in, or interested in, CMA World Services.

CMA Groups

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.

CMA World Services

Some members choose to become involved in service outside the groups. These activities take place at the District, Area, and World levels. The primary service activities at the World Services level take place through involvement with the annual General Service Conference. Between conferences the General Services Committee meets regularly to discuss issues within our Fellowship and to implement recommendations from the conference. The GSC also establishes budgets, prepares financial reports, and pays expenses incurred at the World Services level.

Through its subcommittees, the GSC operates the website, publishes literature, encourages H&I activities, and responds to outside requests for information. Additionally, the subcommittees of the GSC provide services to members and groups, such as the distribution of chips and literature.

Subcommittees of the GSC

The General Services Committee (GSC) currently has six standing Subcommittees: Conference, Hospitals & Institutions, Literature, Fulfillment, Public Information & Outreach, and Communications.

    The 2008 CMA Conference required that the World CMA Literature Committee follow particular Guidelines. In following these Guidelines, CMA and/or CMAGSO has created this work in keeping with the 2008 Conference Literature Guidelines plus CMA's understanding of the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions.

    While our groups are autonomous, it is our service work and structure that helps make the spiritual program of recovery widely available to any who may seek it. Service work benefits all of us in the fellowship. It benefits the newcomer and it rewards those who choose to do service. For many of us, service work is a joy and an integral part of our own personal recovery.
