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 contributions to our District, 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.

Is your meetings information correct on the CMA World Website? Are you registered as the contact person for your meeting? Updates to the CMA World Meeting Directory can be made HERE.
