What is Crystal Meth Anonymous?
Crystal Meth Anonymous is a fellowship of people for whom crystal meth has become a serious problem. The members of Crystal Meth Anonymous meet regularly, share support and fellowship, an create a safe environment to stay clean.
Am I an addict?
Only you can answer that question. For many of us, the answer was clear. We could not control our drug use. Our lives had become unmanageable.
Have you tried to stop using crystal meth and found that you couldn’t? Do you find that you can’t control your use once you start?
If so, you may be suffering from the disease of addiction. The fellowship of Crystal Meth Anonymous can help.
How do I join?
The only requirement for membership in CMA is a desire to stop using crystal meth and all other mind altering substances. Basically, you’re a member of CMA if and when you say so. It’s that simple.
There are no dues or fees for CMA membership. Typically, each CMA meeting will pass a collection basket to cover expenses such as rent, literature, etc. All members are free to contribute as much or as little as they wish.
What about alcohol & other drugs?
The goal of Crystal Meth Anonymous is to help crystal meth addicts lead a life free of active addiction. CMA recommends total abstinence from all drugs, including alcohol, for the following reasons:
1) Many crystal meth relapses start with alcohol or another drug.
2) Addicts tend to use any substance addictively , and when we do, we find ourselves with the same problems and maybe some new ones.
3) We have found our spiritual lives are compromised if we use any mind altering substances whatsoever.
This is not a religious program.
Crystal Meth Anonymous is a spiritual program, but we believe our members can define what spirituality means for themselves.
What is crucial to recovery is an adherence to spiritual principles. Among these are three – honesty, open-mindedness, and willingness – that are vital. With these we will not be defeated.
