Cocaine Anonymous is an association of men and women who share their strengths, hopes and experiences with each other so that they might figure out their common issue, and assist other people to recover from their dependency.
The most ideal approach to contact somebody is to address them on a typical level. Those who belong to Cocaine Anonymous are all addicts who are recovering and remain sober by working together with other people. Though the problem of addiction is what binds these people together, they are drawn from different economic, ethnic, social and religious backgrounds.
The main prerequisite for enrolment is a craving to quit utilizing cocaine and all other mind-altering substances.
All are welcome who are fighting cocaine and other substances including alcohol and other mind altering drugs. The major factor is to support the group through voluntary contributions, so no mandatory payments are demanded.
In order to foot the bills for rent, coffee, literature and the programs meant to support struggling addicts, some voluntary contributions are sought. That said, new members shouldn't feel obligated to give. No outside funds are received either from individuals or organisations.
Cocaine Anonymous is not affiliated with any group whether political or religious, organisation or institution of any kind. We don't wish to participate in any contention and we neither underwrite nor contradict 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. Cocaine Anonymous members are able to define their own spirituality in the way that best helps them. As a group, Cocaine Anonymous does not have a stand on any issue outside the programme but, members are free to form their opinions. They are not connected with any rehabilitations, hospitals or recovery houses, though several of these places do refer people to Cocaine Anonymous to keep them sober.
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.
Ensuring that addicts defeat this ailment of theirs is the major mission of Cocaine Anonymous. Individual experience has demonstrated that the best approach to achieve and keep up sobriety is to work with others experiencing a similar illness.
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. 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.
Anyone in trouble with cocaine, "crack" cocaine or any other substance of abuse and needs help are welcome to Cocaine Anonymous. No membership fees and dues are involved. The costs caused are upheld by the intentional commitments of Cocaine Anonymous individuals. They consciously decline every single outside commitment.
The Alcoholic Anonymous program that was developing in 1935 was adapted for this program. The Twelve Step recovery method from AA, which states that your own recovery is aided when you help others, is used by Cocaine Anonymous. 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 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.
