CMA groups are indeed spiritual entities regardless of the place at which they gather. While meeting in-person is the foundation of our CMA fellowship, some CMA groups have moved beyond physical boundaries to online or telephone meetings. By creating safe, “virtual” spaces for crystal meth addicts to meet anywhere, groups can fulfill our primary purpose, to carry the message of recovery to the still-suffering addict.
How to start/edit an Online Meeting
If your group is interested in starting its own online meeting, you can register your online meeting on the CMA online meeting directory.
We continue to receive inquiries on how to start online meetings, choose online platforms, develop new meeting formats, and find ways to practice the Seventh Tradition. We have collected some experience from the Fellowship in regards to this matter.
If you decide to create your own online meeting, you’ll need to choose a platform.
We do not wish to tell any group what to do or not do. Each group must decide what works best for their needs. There are many options for converting to online or phone meetings. CMA does not endorse any specific one of these.
Many groups are currently using one of the online platforms listed below for their CMA meetings. You can visit these providers to get more information on how to use their platforms to set up an online meeting.
- Google Hangouts/Meet
- Free Conference Call
