We are Crystal Meth Anonymous. Together we practice the Twelve Steps as a new way to live, free from crystal meth use. We share our experience, strength, and hope to help each other stay clean and sober, one day at a time. 

What is CMA?

Crystal Meth Anonymous is a 12-Step fellowship for those in recovery from addiction to crystal meth. You never have to use again. And you don’t have to recover alone. Click here for more information about our fellowship and what we do.

Unity Day is back for 2024! We are looking for volunteers to join the committee to help with planning, fundraising, programming, outreach and events. Unity Day is NorCal CMA's annual CMA conference filled with amazing workshops.

Diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging are Important not only to our individual recoveries, but to CMA as a whole.

NorCal CMA is committed to fostering safe, inclusive spaces for all recovering crystal meth addicts, regardless of age, race, physical appearance, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, background, disability, or other personal identifiers, while engaging our fellowship around issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in their local meetings.

As the newest committee within NorCalCMA, the Diversity Equity and Inclusion committee (DEI) is working to build community and facilitate a conversation around these issues.

We are looking for volunteers. As we work to develop our program, we are looking for volunteers to work with the DEI chair and other members of the community. 

If you would like to join the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee, or you would like to attend one of our monthly meetings, please email the chair: dei@norcalcma.org.

Inclusivity Statements

The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee of NorCAL CMA has collected these inclusivity statements from across the fellowship of Crystal Meth Anonymous. These statements are being used in meetings all over the world and are wonderfully diverse, yet focused on the same goal: to increase the feeling of inclusivity in CMA meetings.

We’d like to offer this as a resource for your meeting in case you would like to add one of these to your meeting script. Feel free to use these statements as is, or adapt to the needs and group conscience of your meeting.

Service Keeps You Sober

Service in CMA keeps our community connected and growing. NorCal CMA exists to facilitate communication and the smooth functioning of our meetings and fellowship. 

The Inverted Pyramid

Unlike in traditional hierarchical organizations, CMA and other Twelve Step fellowships are an inverted pyramid with the groups and meetings—and the individual addicts who make up those groups—at the top. CMA relies on its service structure to keep our community connected and growing.

Groups & Meetings

This is the level that most of us are familiar with. The meetings that we all attend are the most important part of the service structure. Every other level of service exists in order to help these Groups or Meetings stay connected and grow. 


This organization, NorCal CMA, is a collection of individual meetings that each send a GSR to form our intergroup. We represent the 48 counties north of the northern county lines of San Luis Obispo, Kern, and San Bernardino Counties in California. The District's first function is to be part of the communication chain that connects each group with the next level of service down the line. 


The Area is the next level of service within CMA. Each Area corresponds to a single state or province within North America. Our Area, the California Area Assembly includes three districts: NorCal CMA, Los Angeles District of CMA, and San Diego CMA. Each District sends a representative called a District Committee Member (DCM) to the Area Assembly. 

CMA General Services

This is the annual assembly of the service body for Crystal Meth Anonymous. Because it is made up of Area Delegates as well as the Board of Trustees and the General Service Committee, it is considered the voice of the fellowship.
