C.A. Lifeline is a service sub-committee of the Hospitals & Institutions Committee. C.A. Lifeline’s primary purpose is to help the newcomer addicts’ transition from treatment to the rooms of Cocaine Anonymous. We do this by providing a temporary contact in the newcomer’s local area. Members of Cocaine Anonymous, usually acting in pairs, meet the patients after their release from treatment and accompany them to their first C.A. meeting. Participation in the C.A. Lifeline is always voluntary.
