We meet at 1:00 PM on the same day as the Area Service Committee (ASC) meets and at the same location which is usually the first Sunday of the month unless the first Sunday falls on a holiday, then we meet the following Sunday. Our Area Service Committee meetings rotate between the groups. Go to the Home Page for the location of our Next Area Service Committee and Subcommittee meetings.

The Hospital and Institutions Subcommittee takes meetings into facilities where the people can’t leave to attend a Narcotics Anonymous Meeting. There are clean time requirements and in some cases you have to get approval or clearance by the facility to be admitted into the facility. We go into hospitals, treatment centers, jails, and prisons to carry the message of hope and freedom from active addiction. Remember no addict seeking recovery need ever die from the horrors of addiction. H & I Guidelines

 

How To Get Involved in H & I

The purpose of the H&I  subcommittee is to carry the NA message of recovery to addicts who don’t have full access to a regular outside meeting.

REQUIREMENTS TO ATTEND AN H&I MEETING IN A TREATMENT FACILITY:

You must have at least three months clean before you can attend a meeting inside of a treatment facility, and six months clean before you can share

REQUIREMENTS TO ATTEND A JAIL OR PRISON MEETING:

To help carry our message to a jail or prison you must have a minimum of one year clean Before going into a TDCJ facility you must submit an application to the volunteer services  www.tdcj.state.tx.us to download the application and mail the application back to volunteer services. Once approved you must attend orientation. Once you have gone through training you can start sharing your experience, strength, and hope behind the walls.

To attend jail meeting the same clean time requirement remains the same but depending on which facility you want to get involved in. There are other requirements for each facility

If you are interested in doing some very rewarding service work or know of any facility that would like to have a Narcotics Anonymous meetings or presentations please feel free to contact your groups H&I representative, and read the “hospitals and institutions service and the NA member” IP or contact the area H&I facilitator at the number listed below for more information or questions.
