Crystal Meth Anonymous

24 Hour HELPLINE

Think you may have a problem with crystal meth? 

Call the CMA Helpline at:

       (855) METH-FREE or (855) 638-4373

CMA’s 24-Hour Helpline is available to provide information and offer support to anyone seeking recovery from crystal meth addiction. Please note the Helpline is not a crisis hotline and therefore not equipped to respond to emergencies or answer any questions of a medical or legal nature. Although we have volunteers 24-hours a day, some calls do get sent to a voicemail system. If that happens, please leave a message including your phone number so we can call you back as soon as possible.

What Is Crystal Meth Anonymous

Crystal Meth Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women 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, organization 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.

A Letter to Anyone New to CMA

Dear Friend,

Thank you for your interest in Crystal Meth Anonymous. Crystal Meth Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women 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 Crystal Meth Anonymous is a new way of life without Crystal Meth. Crystal Meth Anonymous advocates a twelve step recovery program for spiritual development, no matter what our religious belief or background. The first step in our recovery is admission by the addict that he or she is powerless over crystal meth, and that 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 World Services Office or the nearest local group near you to get further information on Crystal Meth Anonymous, speak to a CMA member or find local CMA meetings. Many of these local groups have email and/or phone numbers.

Our web-site navigation system at www.Crystalmeth.org includes links to CMA pamphlets and readings that explain how members of our fellowship used a “12 step program of recovery” and to give a general idea of how CMA works.

Best Wishes,

General Services Office

Just because you want to be informed doesn't mean you can't laugh along the way. Science, politics, religion, pop culture and the law.
