Street Trooping
Street Trooping is an important part of Public Information and Outreach (PI&O) that helps spread the message of recovery to those struggling with crystal meth addiction. Volunteers drop off cards with the CMA helpline at places where those in need are likely to find them. To participate in this service, volunteers must have either one year of sobriety or six months with sponsor approval.

Volunteer with Public Information and Outreach!
PI&O is always looking for volunteers to join us in our mission to spread the message of recovery to all parts of our district, including Orange County, San Gabriel/Riverside, Desert Cities, and San Fernando Valley. Everyone is welcome to join us and be a part of this meaningful service!

Volunteer opportunities for “PRIDE 2024” are now open.

Thank you for volunteering!


CMAinLA H&I (Hospitals & Institutions) takes meetings with Speaker Panels to hospitals, institutions, recovery centers, treatment facilities, and jails to provide support to addicts who are unable to attend meetings on their own. By volunteering to speak on an H&I panel, you are actively engaging in your own recovery journey and practicing the twelfth step of CMA: taking the message of CMA to those who still suffer.

Has your meeting elected an H&I representative? If not, please appoint an H&I rep to receive updates from H&I and have them complete this form: H&I Rep Form.

Interested in speaking on an H&I panel? Add your name to the H&I speaker list by completing this form (6 months sobriety required): H&I Panel Speaker Form
