The primary purpose of the Hospitals & Institutions Committee is to carry the Crystal Meth Anonymous message of recovery to individuals who are confined, restricted, or otherwise unable to attend a 12-Step CMA meeting.
Many times, an H&I meeting is the first introduction to Crystal Meth Anonymous that many inmates, clients, or patients receive. Therefore, it is important that our message of recovery through the 12-Steps be informative, clear, concise, positive, and solution oriented.
What is an H&I Meeting?
An H&I meeting is a 12-Step recovery meeting that takes place inside jails, treatment centers, hospitals, recovery homes, sober living environments or any other institution or facility where access to CMA meetings is limited or restricted. We use conference approved literature and provide this literature to those attending our meetings.
What happens at an H&I Meeting?
There are many formats that can be used at an H&I meeting such as: Topic & Discussion, God Stick Sharing, Question & Answer, just to name a few. Generally, there is a panel with a minimum of two crystal meth addicts sharing their personal experience with recovery and staying sober through the 12-steps. In many ways, H&I meetings resemble regular CMA meetings including the celebration of milestones in sobriety.
