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. The individuals from Cocaine Anonymous are all recouping addicts who keep up their individual sobriety by working with others. Although Cocaine Anonymous members come from a variety of social, ethnic, economic, and religions backgrounds, the one thing the share is their addiction.
To join, the only requirement is wanting to stop using cocaine and all other substances.
Anyone who wants to stop using cocaine, alcohol, or any other mind altering substance is welcome at Cocaine Anonymous. There are no charges to join Cocaine Anonymous; the group supports itself through members voluntary contributions.
Cocaine Anonymous do request deliberate commitments at gatherings to cover costs, for example, espresso, lease, writing and administrations to help the individuals who are as yet enduring. 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 stay focused and not be involved in arguments and debates, we do not align ourselves with any other cause.
Cocaine Anonymous does not work with any organisation to protect its values and credibility. Cocaine Anonymous is a spiritual programme but does not identify itself with any religious group. Members of Cocaine Anonymous choose their spiritual path to follow. While each member is free to have opinions of their own, Cocaine Anonymous does not officially have an opinion on outside issues. 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' main goal is for their members to stay off of cocaine and other mind altering drugs and to help other members achieve the same goals.
Offering help to addicts to have a successful recovery is the only purpose of Cocaine Anonymous. People have demonstrated that working with others who are coping with the same problems is the most effective way to get sober and stay clean.
Because there is already proof that it is effective, the Twelve Steps of Recovery is used at Cocaine Anonymous.
For anyone who comes to Cocaine Anonymous for help, the Fellowship only wishes to help with recovery and helping individuals stay sober. Though Cocaine Anonymous members may get into drug education, propaganda, psychiatric and medical treatment, and drug addiction research, the body does not engage in any of these as an organisation.
All the people who show their commitment to quit cocaine use, including "crack" cocaine and other mentally dangerous substances can come to Cocaine Anonymous. We charge no fees or dues to become a member. The costs caused are upheld by the intentional commitments of Cocaine Anonymous individuals. They consciously decline every single outside commitment.
Cocaine Anonymous was developed on the foundation of Alcoholic Anonymous in 1935. Like AA, Cocaine Anonymous utilizes the Twelve Step recuperation strategy which includes services to others as a way towards recuperation from enslavement. It is believed that a person with experience is better placed to understand and empathise with one struggling with the same addiction.
The fact that a person has made a recovery from his/her addiction, and is openly sharing this experience with the next individual, is a strong message for a person who's desperately looking for a solution for his/her own addiction. There develops a bond amongst the members of Cocaine Anonymous that goes beyond all of the other social restrictions.
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.
