Addicts who are institutionalized and unable to attend meetings often have their first experience with Narcotics Anonymous thanks to a panel from Hospitals and Institutions. Recovering addicts carry the message into residential drug treatment centers, jails, mental institutions, and other facilities. Having an opportunity to bring the gift of hope to an addict still suffering and unable to go out to meeting is an amazing experience. Panel leaders must have 1 year clean and panel members must have 6 months to share on a panel. The H&I Committee now meets on the first Thursday of the month.

The Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department has implemented a new facility clearance process. Follow the link and make sure to review the prerequisites prior to submitting the form.
You may request information for the new application here.

Please email the H&I Committee from the contact page to request more information.
If you would like to go on a panel and carry the message of what it was like, what happened, and what it’s like today, please fill and submit this short form (here) and a volunteer will contact you.
