Hospitals and Institutions (H&I)

The Santa Barbara North County H&I Committee is dedicated to providing AA meetings, panels and literature to those confined to hospitals, jails, prisons, treatment centers and other facilities that request support from Alcoholics Anonymous. We currently serve 10 facilitates with another 11 in outreach.

We share our experience, strength, and hope in harmony with the 5th Tradition and are not affiliated with these facilities in accordance with the 9th Tradition.
The Santa Barbara North County H&I Committee currently holds two meetings a month.

North SB County H&I Committee Meeting(Zoom)
3rd Thursday of every month @ 7:00pm
Zoom ID 334 839 0221 Code 448146

Santa Maria H&I Subcommittee Meeting
2nd Thursday of every month @ 5:30 pm
Orcutt Presbyterian Church, 993 Patterson
The Ark Bldg (by the basketball hoops)

We strongly encourage you to attend one of our monthly meetings to find out how to participate in any of these commitments. We are always looking for responsible AA members who are willing to carry the message to the suffering alcoholic.

7th Tradition
Santa Barbara North County H&I (SBNCHIC) committee is supported by direct A.A. member donations and contributions from A.A. meeting groups through a portion of their 7th Tradition collections or passing the “H&I Can”. In addition to taking meetings into hospitals and institutions, the H&I committee provides A.A. approved literature to these facilities.

Special Notice
Because of the special nature of some of the institutions which are served by H&I, it may be necessary for individuals to be granted clearance by the facility before attending their meetings. This process of qualification is particularly true of local jails, state prisons and federal penitentiaries. Minimum sobriety requirements may apply as well.

Additional Outreach
H&I is always available for other hospitals and institutions where the AA program would be beneficial. We ask the public and AA members to advise us of any opportunities to be of service.
