What is CMA?

Crystal Meth Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share their experience, strength and hope with each other, so they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from addiction to crystal meth. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using. There are no dues or fees for CMA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. CMA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organisation, or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; and neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to lead a sober life and to carry the message of recovery to the crystal meth addict who still suffers. *

Letter to the Newcomer

Dear Friend, 

Thank you for your interest in Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA). CMA is a fellowship for whom all drugs, specifically crystal meth, have become a problem. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using. There are no dues or membership lists. The fellowship that is CMA is a new way of life without crystal meth. CMA advocates a twelve-step recovery program for spiritual development, no matter what our religious belief or background. The first step in our recovery is an admission by the addict that they are powerless over crystal meth, and that their life has become unmanageable.

The experience of CMA members is that crystal meth addiction is a progressive illness that cannot be cured, but which, like some other illnesses, can be arrested, by not using, one day at a time. CMA members are happy to offer help by sharing their experience, strength and hope in how they stay clean & sober. One of the ways members stay clean & sober is by helping other crystal meth addicts to achieve sobriety.

It is often helpful for the crystal meth addict to talk with a CMA member because it may make it easier to understand the nature of our illness, and to accept the help the fellowship of CMA can offer. We would encourage you to get in touch with the nearest local group near you to get further information about CMA, speak to a CMA member or find local CMA meetings. These resources can be found under Contact Us and Meetings on this web site. 

Our CMA pamphlets and readings that explain how members of our fellowship use a ’12 step program of recovery’ and to give a general idea of how CMA works.
