CWPASCNA’s Hospitals & Institutions Subcommittee brings Narcotics Anonymous meetings to those in jails, hospitals, and institutions!

From NA IP No. 20:

The purpose of an H&I meeting is to carry the message of recovery to addicts who do not have full access to regular Narcotics Anonymous meetings. H&I meetings, except for those in long-term facilities, are intended to introduce those addicts in attendance to the basics of the NA program. In order to form a clear understanding of an H&I meeting, it is important to learn about our service structure.

An H&I meeting is generally a service provided by an area service committee’s H&I subcommittee. These meetings occur in hospitals, treatment centers, correctional facilities, and adolescent institutions. Rather than being an NA group, it is vital that an H&I meeting always be held under the direction of an H&I subcommittee.



H&I Meetings & Workshops are held on the first Saturday of every month before our ASC meeting at 9:00 at French Creek Community Church.

Other CWPASCNA events may also have H&I workshops available.


Do you have six (6) months or more clean and would like to be of service?

Are you a facility that is interested in Narcotics Anonymous meetings?

Reach out to the H&I Chair to learn more!

Addicts behind the walls of hospitals and institutions need meetings too! Bring the message to addicts who are currently unable to come to get it themselves.
