Hospitals & Institutions

Our primary purpose is to carry the message of recovery to the addict who still suffers.

One way we do this is by holding meetings in correctional facilities, sanatoriums, detox units, juvenile detention centres, half-way houses, shelters and other places where residents can’t get to outside CA meetings. These places can be public, charitable or private. Confinement may be voluntary or involuntary.

For information about H&I please contact


Write Lines is a printed publication created by members of Cocaine Anonymous that we take primarily into H&I meetings held in these facilities. They contain members' stories, poetry, games and many other things that might help someone get some identification, or just help them to pass the time.

Previous issues of Write Lines can be found here.

Write Lines can not be produced without input from members of the fellowship. If you would like to submit something for a future publication please email it to with a completed release form attached.
