The sole purpose of the Hospitals & Institutions Committee is to carry the message of Cocaine Anonymous to those in hospitals and institutions. Institutions served may include, but are not limited to: correctional facilities, sanitariums, detox units, juvenile detention centers, half-way houses and shelters – either governmental or private. Confinement may be voluntary or involuntary.

The Committee is organized under the Ninth Tradition of Cocaine Anonymous, which states: “C.A. as such, ought never be organized; but we may create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve.” C.A. H&I meetings are held at the invitation of the hospital or institution, ever mindful of the admonition “Cooperation, not Affiliation!”

What are Hospitals & Institutions Meetings?
There is a distinct difference between H&I meetings and regular C.A. Meetings. H&I meetings are restricted to patients or residents only, and not open to the community as a whole. These meetings are brought into facilities by local C.A. members, through the H&I Committee. H&I Meetings are basically beginners meetings, with the chairperson of each meeting providing the speakers. They are not usually listed in the area or world directory; and they do not observe the 7th Tradition. Certain facilities may require H&I participants to be subject to sobriety requirements, dress and conduct codes.

“Open” H & I Meetings
In some cases a hospital or institution may request the H&I meeting be open to the C.A. community as a whole. This type of “Open” H&I Meeting may or may not be listed in the area or district meeting directory. However, as with all H&I meetings, the 7th tradition is not observed. In addition, free books and literature are limited to clients of the institution only.

Cocaine Anonymous is a Fellowship of, by, and for cocaine addicts seeking recovery. Friends and family of cocaine addicts should contact Co-Anon, a Fellowship dedicated to their much different needs.

Hospitals and Institutions Meetings

Avoid prolonged Drug-a-Logs.
Do not criticize or make derogatory remarks about the facility, its personnel, or any of its policies and practices. This includes opinions about pills, anti-depressants, tranquilizers, and antabuse which are used by many facilities.
Never give medical or legal advice or recommend other facilities to patients.
Do not talk down to the group.
Do not use profanity; you may be stopped by the meeting chairperson if you do.
Do not bring visitors – people from outside the fellowship of Cocaine Anonymous, or C.A. members not on the panel at the facility.
Do not bring anything in or take anything out. This includes written or verbal messages for an inmate or patient.
We do not recommend that you exchange phone numbers or addresses with people at a correctional facility, promise to write them, or agree to meet them when they leave. In most correctional facilities this is a major violation of their policy. Under no circumstances may you or any member of the panel violate the facility’s policy on this matter. You may refer them to the C.A. meeting directory and indicate meetings that you regularly attend.
Do not promise inmates or patients jobs or aid of any kind.
Dress appropriately. Remember that you are representing C.A.
Do make sure that you are properly cleared to attend a correctional institution meeting. If you have outstanding warrants, or are on parole or probation, they may keep you.
Show up. Having a meeting “go dark” is worse than not having a meeting there at all. There is nothing that makes C.A. look as bad as nobody showing up to do a meeting. We have been invited to hold these panel meetings by the facilities – it is a privilege. C.A. as a whole looks bad when no one shows up.
