Cocaine Anonymous is a support group of men and women who help each other through recovery by sharing their experiences, strength, and hope.
To succeed in helping someone, it is best to meet them where they are at. The individuals from Cocaine Anonymous are all recouping addicts who keep up their individual sobriety by working with others. Cocaine Anonymous does not discriminate against members either on the social, race, economic or religious status, they focus on what they all share, the addiction to cocaine.
A wish to quit using cocaine and all the other drugs that produce mood changes is the only requirement in order to become a member.
So far as you desire to quit using cocaine and other substances that hamper the functioning of the brain (including alcohol and other drugs), you are highly welcome. There are no charges to join Cocaine Anonymous; the group supports itself through members voluntary contributions.
Cocaine Anonymous do request non-compulsory donations at meetings to pay for things like rent, literature, coffee, rent, and services to assist the people who are still undergoing hardship. Though, a newcomer does not need to feel as if he/she is compelled to make a contribution. They don't acknowledge gifts from associations or people outside the cooperation.
The Cocaine Anonymous does not liaise with any institution, organisation, politics, denomination or sect Cocaine Anonymous don't want to become engaged in any controversial matter and don't oppose/endorse any causes.
To maintain integrity and stay away from controversy, Cocaine Anonymous do not align with any outside groups. Although they are a spiritual programme, Cocaine Anonymous link with no religion. The definition of their individual spiritual life as they want is an exclusive right of all Cocaine Anonymous members. Cocaine Anonymous has no particular views about other external matters, though the members have the right to harbour and express their individual views. 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.
The sole function of Cocaine Anonymous is to provide recovery to those who are battling with addiction. It is a proven fact that to overcome addiction and remain sober, the only way it is obtainable is to associate and work alongside others like you.
The Twelve Steps of Recovery is used by Cocaine Anonymous, due to its proven positive effects.
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. We charge no fees or dues to become a member. The costs suffered are supported by non-compulsory donations of the members of Cocaine Anonymous and Cocaine Anonymous respectfully refuse any donations from outside.
Cocaine Anonymous was developed on the foundation of Alcoholic Anonymous in 1935. Like AA, Cocaine Anonymous implements the Twelve Step method, which emphasizes service to others as the way to recovery. 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.
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. There develops a bond amongst the members of Cocaine Anonymous that goes beyond all of the other social restrictions.
Regular meetings are held by Cocaine Anonymous to help these bonds grow and provide an opportunity for new members to join to gain the assistance they are after.
