NDANA – Hospitals & Institutions

NDANA – Hospitals & Institutions

Purpose

The Hospitals and Institutions subcommittee exists to carry the NA message of recovery from addiction to residents of facilities who are restricted from full ac- cess to regular NA meetings.

The purpose of an H&I meeting/presentation is to carry the message to addicts in hospitals and institutions who do not have full access to regular Narcotics Anonymous meetings. H&I meetings/presentations, except for those in longer- term facilities, are intended simply to introduce those attending to some of the basics of the NA program.

Membership

Any member of Narcotics Anonymous may become a member of H&I by attending the H&I subcommittee meetings. H&I subcommittee meetings are held on the second Sunday of each month at 2:00 PM, prior to New Dominion Area Service.

All members are bound to comply with the clean time requirements for H&I service eligibility. Clean time for the purpose of this subcommittee shall be construed as complete abstinence from all drugs. Additionally, members should be familiar with the Hospitals & Institutions Handbook – including the “Do’s and Don’ts”.
