Conference Hospitals and Institutions Committee (CHIC)



The Conference Hospitals and Institutions Committee (CHIC) strives to carry the message of hope and recovery to sex and love addicts who are incarcerated, in treatment centers for substance abuse, residing in halfway houses, or those who are otherwise confined and cannot attend regular meetings.  CHIC develops Pen Pal and other outreach programs that can be further developed at the local Intergroup level.

CHIC Pen Pal Program

You can make a difference to an incarcerated,  institutionalized or hospitalized person and guide an them through the steps. Help them know that there is a sober life available and prepare them to reenter the outside world. Inmates and those in hospitals and institutions from all over the United States are contacting us every month, seeking help with their sex and love addiction.
