If you have a friend or loved one suffering from addiction to crystal meth, we hope this information will be helpful in providing support for you and your loved one.
Crystal Meth Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share their experience, strength and hope with each other, so they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from addiction to crystal meth. The foundation of the fellowship is regular attendance at meetings where members discuss how they achieved sobriety and a new outlook on their way of living. We recommend a program of recovery which includes the Twelve Steps.
The primary purpose of the Hospitals & Institutions Advisory Committee is to carry the Crystal Meth Anonymous message of recovery to individuals who are confined, restricted, or otherwise unable to attend a Twelve Step CMA meeting.

SUBJECT: ANONYMITY OF CMA MEMBERS
For many years, we in CMA have appreciated the support we have received from our friends in the media. You have assisted in saving countless lives. We seek your continued cooperation in protecting the anonymity of our members at the public level.
In 1994, the founder of CMA–Bill C., a recovering crystal meth addict 16 years sober in A.A.–observed a growing number of other crystal meth addicts attending various twelve-step meetings in Los Angeles. Bill recalled that many of the secretaries of these meetings did not like the shares of the crystal meth addicts and were therefore reluctant to call on them in meetings.
