Hospitals & Institutions

“We have but one primary purpose, to carry the message to the addict who still suffers.”

~(NA Fifth Tradition, Basic Text, 6th Ed., p. 60)

The Off the Wall Area Hospitals and Institutions (H&I) subcommittee is a group of Narcotics Anonymous members who carry a clear Narcotics Anonymous message of recovery to addicts in institutions where they may not otherwise have regular access to outside NA meetings.

Off the Wall H&I members are governed by the general rules of the facilities they serve and are accountable to the Off the Wall Area Service Committee.
