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. Cocaine Anonymous is made up of addicts that are recovering from the ailment and who try to stay away from drugs by cooperating with other addicts. 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.
The main prerequisite for enrolment is a craving to quit utilizing cocaine and all other mind-altering substances.
Any person who desires to quit using cocaine and all the other drugs that produce mood changes (including alcohol and other substances) is very welcome. There are no membership fees; Cocaine Anonymous is completely self-supporting via our own donations.
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. They do not take any donations or contributions from anyone outside of the group.
Cocaine Anonymous are not aligned with any group, section, legislative issues, association or foundation. We don't wish to participate in any contention and we neither underwrite nor contradict any causes.
Cocaine Anonymous does not work with any organisation to protect its values and credibility. In spite of the fact that Cocaine Anonymous is a spirituality program, they don't adjust themselves to any religion. Cocaine Anonymous individuals are allowed to characterize their deep sense of being as they see fit. While each member is free to have opinions of their own, Cocaine Anonymous does not officially have an opinion on outside issues. They also do not affiliate with any rehab, hospital, or recovery residences, but many organizations like these do recommend patients to Cocaine Anonymous to help them stay drug free.
Staying clear of Cocaine and other substances that change the functioning of the mind and assisting other addicts to achieve same is the major role of Cocaine Anonymous.
The main reason for Cocaine Anonymous is to offer recuperation to people who are experiencing 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.
Because there is already proof that it is effective, the Twelve Steps of Recovery is used at Cocaine Anonymous.
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. We charge no fees or dues to become a member. Expenses are paid through voluntary contributions from Cocaine Anonymous members and they do not accept outside help.
The program of rehabilitation was adjusted from the program created by Alcoholics Anonymous 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. 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.
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. The closeness that results in members of Cocaine Anonymous is very healthy, cutting across social differences.
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.
