Addicts who are institutionalized and unable to attend meetings often have their first experience with Narcotics Anonymous thanks to a panel from Hospitals and Institutions. Recovering addicts carry the message into residential drug treatment centers, jails, mental institutions, and other facilities. Having an opportunity to bring the gift of hope to an addict still suffering and unable to go out to a meeting is an amazing experience. Panel leaders must have 1 year clean and panel members must have 6 months to share on a panel. The H&I Committee usually meets on the fourth Monday of the month.
The purpose of an H&I meeting is to carry the NA message of recovery to addicts who do not have full access to regular Narcotics Anonymous meetings. H&I meetings and presentations, except for those in longer term facilities, are intended to simply introduce those attending to some of the basics of the NA program.
