Cocaine Anonymous is a gathering of people from all walks of life with the common problem of cocaine addiction who meet to share and encourage each other on their recovery journey from addiction.
Talking to someone on a common level is the best way to get through. Everyone who belongs to Cocaine Anonymous is recovering from addiction and is able to stay sober through working with others. Members of Cocaine Anonymous come from different ethnic, religious, social and economic backgrounds, though what they do share is their addiction.
To join, the only requirement is wanting to stop using cocaine and all other substances.
All are welcome who are fighting cocaine and other substances including alcohol and other mind altering drugs. Because the program is completely self-supporting with contributions, there are no fees or dues for membership.
Cocaine Anonymous will ask for voluntary donations to cover things like coffee, rent, literature, and services that will help people who are still suffering. There is no pressure to contribute especially for the new members if they are not in a position to give. They don't acknowledge gifts from associations or people outside the cooperation.
Cocaine Anonymous is not affiliated with any group whether political or religious, organisation or institution of any kind. In order to remain free of controversy, we don't support or oppose any causes.
Cocaine Anonymous are not allied with any external organisation in order to prevent any possible complications and to remain honest. Cocaine Anonymous is a spiritual programme but does not identify itself with any religious group. Members of Cocaine Anonymous are free to describe their own spirituality as they view appropriate. As a group, Cocaine Anonymous does not have a stand on any issue outside the programme but, members are free to form their opinions. Majority of the hospital's, recovery houses and rehabs send their patients to Cocaine Anonymous to help them remain sober, but we don't have any affiliation with them.
Cocaine Anonymous' basic role is to remain free from cocaine and all other personality adjusting substances in addition to help other people accomplish a similar opportunity.
The sole function of Cocaine Anonymous is to provide recovery to those who are battling with addiction. Personal experience has illustrated that the best manner to become and remain sober is to work together with other people who battle with the same.
Cocaine Anonymous employ the 12 steps of recovery as it has already been shown that this recovery programme is effective.
Cocaine Anonymous is concerned exclusively with the individual recuperation and preceded with restraint of individual drug addicts who swing to the Fellowship for assistance. Although some members participate in things like drug addiction research, medical or psychiatric treatment, drug education, or propaganda on an individual level, Cocaine Anonymous does not participate as a fellowship.
Anyone in trouble with cocaine, "crack" cocaine or any other substance of abuse and needs help are welcome to Cocaine Anonymous. There is no levy or charges for membership. The costs suffered are supported by non-compulsory donations of the members of Cocaine Anonymous and Cocaine Anonymous respectfully refuse any donations from outside.
The program of rehabilitation was adjusted from the program created by Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935. Cocaine Anonymous uses the Twelve Step Recovery Method crafted by AA that encourages serving others to help yourself in the battle for sobriety. They feel that someone who is addicted conversing with another can give a level of common comprehension and association that is difficult to get through different techniques.
Those in desperate need of help and understanding, talking with someone who has been through the same works great and gives them confidence that they too can overcome. The bond that develops between Cocaine Anonymous members is stronger than other social relationships.
In the bid to instil this togetherness in the newcomers and to let them discover the unity that is shared, and maybe the solution to their individual addiction issues, constant meetings are held by Cocaine Anonymous.
