Cocaine Anonymous is a support group of men and women who help each other through recovery by sharing their experiences, strength, and hope.
Interacting with people in a language they are familiar with is the best method. Cocaine Anonymous members are all recovering addicts who help each other keep away from the drug by working together. Though the problem of addiction is what binds these people together, they are drawn from different economic, ethnic, social and religious backgrounds.
The qualifying criteria to be a member is that one wants to quit using cocaine and other substances of abuse.
Anyone who wants to stop using cocaine, alcohol, or any other mind altering substance is welcome at Cocaine Anonymous. There are no membership fees; Cocaine Anonymous is completely self-supporting via our own donations.
Coffee, rentals, materials and other services offered to struggling addicts are covered by Cocaine Anonymous asking for voluntary contributions at meetings. Though, a newcomer does not need to feel as if he/she is compelled to make a contribution. No outside funds are received either from individuals or organisations.
Cocaine Anonymous are not in partnership with any denomination, institution, sect, political group or organisation. Cocaine Anonymous don't want to become engaged in any controversial matter and don't oppose/endorse any causes.
Keeping in mind the end goal to keep up honesty and maintain a strategic distance from any conceivable entanglements, Cocaine Anonymous are not associated with any outside association. There are no links between Cocaine Anonymous and any religious group or belief, even though it is a spiritually inclined programme. Members of Cocaine Anonymous choose their spiritual path to follow. As a group, Cocaine Anonymous does not have a stand on any issue outside the programme but, members are free to form their opinions. Though not connected to any rehab centres, recovery homes or medical facilities, Cocaine Anonymous do recommend these service providers to their patients for assistance in getting clean.
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.
All Cocaine Anonymous focuses on is to help recovering addicts overcome their 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 utilize the Twelve Steps of Recovery, since it has as of now been demonstrated that the Twelve-Step recuperation program works.
Cocaine Anonymous is only concerned with the individual recovery and on-going sobriety of the individual substance addict who approaches them for assistance. Cocaine Anonymous don't participate in substance addiction research, psychiatric/medical treatment, substance education, or any form of advocacy, though members may take part in these activities in their individual capacity.
Cocaine Anonymous is open to everyone who communicates a wish to quit using cocaine, including other drugs that produce mood changes and "crack" cocaine. No membership fees and dues are involved. Expenses are paid through voluntary contributions from Cocaine Anonymous members and they do not accept outside help.
The recovery programme was modified from the Alcoholics Anonymous programme which was devised in 1935. Just like Alcoholics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous make use of the 12-step recovery approach, which uses service to other people as a path towards recovery from dependency. The believe that addicts talking to each other can bring about a level of understanding and fellowship that can't be reached with other methods.
People who are seeking for healing from addiction by all means will find a good respite and motivation when one that has found these healing talks to them about their experience. There rises a bond among Cocaine Anonymous individuals that upsurges above all other social limits.
To further their fellowship, Cocaine Anonymous has regular meetings where new members can find them and get help with the answers they're looking for.
