Hospitals & Institutions Hub

Hospitals and Institutions (H&I) service is the primary way NA members carry the NA message to addicts that cannot regularly attend scheduled NA meetings because they are confined to a hospital, rehabilitation facility or correctional facility.

The recently formed Northern Australia H&I Hub plays a central role in H&I service delivery to the Northern Territory and Queensland (with the exception of the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast service areas) by initiating, coordinating and conducting local NA Hospitals and Institutions presentations and meetings.

The H&I Hub also meets regularly to:

  • Conduct monthly meetings to pool resources and act in a unified manner
  • Prepare H&I policies and guidelines
  • Serve as a link to Regional H&I
  • Support members to facilitate H&I presentations/meetings
  • Serve as a distribution centre for H&I literature
  • Conduct learning days and workshops
  • Act at the single point of accountability for all area H&I services 

Getting Involved in H&I

If you would like to be placed on a rehab, detox or correctional centre roster, please complete and submit the Expression of Interest form. Roster commitments can vary from fortnightly to monthly depending on which roster you sign up for and if you’re uncertain if H&I is for you we can arrange an observership.

Expressions of Interest

Monthly: Schedule TBA - Members Australia-wide are invited to join the speaker roster (12-month minimum clean time requirement and 5 years without criminal conviction required for security clearance).

The H&I Hub will send a confirmation email with further information and connect you with the relevant H&I Coordinator(s).

Information provided in the EOI form is stored securely and will not be shared with third parties.

Clean Time Requirements

Clean time requirement for non-secure facilities (Detox and Rehabs) is 3 months to observe and 6 months to facilitate.

Clean time requirement for all Prison H&I is 1 year minimum, however we accept applications at 6 months to allow for security clearance processing time.
