Each group is autonomous and chooses its own format and script. There are useful suggestions, scripts and readings on the CMA World Services Web Site. In addition, below are some sample scripts that incorporate popular New York City formats. Groups should feel free to adapt, combine, and revise them. Many meetings also include readings. Some of those are included in the World Services New Meeting Guide (.doc).
Expressions of Hope is a collection of personal experiences from crystal meth addicts in recovery. This newly expanded and revised edition has been redesigned around the stages of the recovery process: personal stories of powerlessness and hopelessness before entering the rooms, working the program of recovery, application of the common tools and suggestions, and learning how to face life on life's terms in sobriety.
The selected stories, articles and readings were chosen to represent a wide range of topics, including physical health, intimate relationships (including marriage and children), becoming sober in prison (and reintegrating after being released), and even the economic crisis. Though the selections are diverse and were written by those in early recovery as well as those with long-term sobriety, the message conveyed throughout this book is that no matter how bleak life seems right now, there is always HOPE.
The books are available now at the low price of $8.00 per copy.Read More
