Hospitals & Institutions
DEFINITION AND PURPOSE
The H&I Subcommittee of the Rochester Area Service Committee are a group of men and women,
members of Narcotics Anonymous, who believe in the concept, “To assure that no addict is a hospital
or institution seeking recovery need die without having had a chance to find a better way of life. From
this day forward may we provide the necessary services.”
This concept should always be our primary concern. This will ensure that when an addict who is
housed in a correctional facility, hospital, or recovery house reaches out for recovery, Narcotics
Anonymous will be there.
This committee is a subcommittee of the Rochester Area Service Committee, and is directly
responsible to that committee.
FUNCTION OF THE H&I SUBCOMMITTEE
A. To carry the message, and to distribute literature to all facilities through our H&I panels.
B. To conduct a monthly business meeting.
C. To have an annual learning day in conjunction with the Activities Subcommittee of the RASC.
