PUBLIC INFORMATION AND OUTREACH

STREET TROUPING

Our district Public Information & Outreach (PI&O) has one primary purpose: to inform those who are affected by crystal meth about CRYSTAL METH ANONYMOUS.  

One of the many ways we do that is through street trouping.  Street trouping is how we continue to raise awareness of CMA by providing information about CMA to places where addicts who might need recovery can find resources about the Fellowship of CMA.  

For information about our next street trouping or if you are interested in volunteering, please message Fendy S.   We suggest that you have 1-year of clean time or 6-months with sponsor approval.  

There are no Street Trouping events for December.

H&I
Hospitals and Institutions  currently has 19 active panels.

If your meeting does not have a H&I liaison, please make a weekly announcement for your meeting:

  • The Los Angeles Hospitals and Institutions committee takes panels to places, such as jails, rehabs, detoxes and psych-wards, where people cannot get out to a CMA meeting. Your generous donations go to provide literature and chips to the patients and inmates of these facilities.
  • H&I is an excellent opportunity to be of service. The H&I Committee meets monthly at 11:30am on the 2nd Saturday of each month following the GSR meeting. This is where you can sign up to speak on panels or become a panel leader. Orientation is at the end of meeting if any needs to be made. 
  • You can also go online at CMAinLA.com and select the H&I link. H&I needs your support and we invite you to attend our monthly meeting and be a part of the committee.
  • We need your support and invite you to attend our monthly GSR meeting to help rebuild the H&I Committee. There are many service commitments that need to be filled to reestablish the H&I Committee. H&I saves lives. Please join the committee to ensure CMA H&I can continue to support crystal meth addicts in hospitals and institutions.
  • Also seeking panel leaders and fellows with 5 or more years of sobriety to go get clearance to be able to speak in jails.


Each CMA meeting and/or group is self supporting through contributions. 
Does your meeting have 7th Tradition in excess of its prudent reserve?
Consider your contributions to our District and/or Area Assembly and/or CMA World.

Chips and Literature are available each month during the GSR meeting. Plan ahead so that you can communicate with your Chips, Literature person and Treasurer for replenishment needs. You can also get chips and medallions directly from the CMA Store.
