SUBJECT: ANONYMITY OF CMA MEMBERS
For many years, we in CMA have appreciated the support we have received from our friends in the media. You have assisted in saving countless lives. We seek your continued cooperation in protecting the anonymity of our members at the public level.
We ask, therefore, that in presenting CMA members:
Anonymity lies at the heart of our Fellowship and assures our members that their recovery will be private. Often, the active addict will avoid any source of help, which might reveal his or her identity.
Crystal Meth Anonymous is not affiliated with any other organization, although, with permission, we have adapted A.A.’s Twelve Steps for our own use. CMA is self-supporting, declining outside contributions; and we are non-professional, offering only the voluntary support of one Crystal Meth Addict helping another.
Throughout the world, favorable media coverage has been one of the principal means of bringing Crystal Meth Addicts into our fellowship. You have helped make this possible, and for that we thank you.
