CMA H&I (Hospitals & Institutions) takes meetings with Speaker Panels to hospitals, institutions, recovery centers, treatment facilities and jails. We take meetings to addicts who are unable to get out to a meeting on their own. When you volunteer to speak on an H&I panel, you are participating in your recovery, practicing the twelfth step of CMA, by taking the message of CMA to the addict who still suffers. We have over 30 H&I panels in the Los Angeles area, and are always in need of speakers. As long as you have at least 6 months of recovery, you are qualified to speak on a panel. Speaking on a panel is a rewarding experience that can energize your recovery program.
CMA members can make contributions to H&I: CONTRIBUTE HERE and be sure to signify in “group or member” field, that you are making a contribution to H&I.
