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. Everyone who belongs to Cocaine Anonymous is recovering from addiction and is able to stay sober through working with others. Members of Cocaine Anonymous come from different ethnic, religious, social and economic backgrounds, though what they do share is their addiction.
The main prerequisite for enrolment is a craving to quit utilizing cocaine and all other mind-altering substances.
Anyone who wants to stop using cocaine, alcohol, or any other mind altering substance is welcome at Cocaine Anonymous. The major factor is to support the group through voluntary contributions, so no mandatory payments are demanded.
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. There is no pressure to contribute especially for the new members if they are not in a position to give. They don't accept any contributions from people/organisations that are not part of the association.
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.
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. Although they are a spiritual programme, Cocaine Anonymous link with no religion. Members of Cocaine Anonymous choose their spiritual path to follow. Though individual members may have their own opinions, Cocaine Anonymous as an entity do not have any opinions on external affairs. Majority of the hospital's, recovery houses and rehabs send their patients to Cocaine Anonymous to help them remain sober, but we don't have any affiliation with them.
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.
Ensuring that addicts defeat this ailment of theirs is the major mission of Cocaine Anonymous. 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.
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. No one has to pay dues or fees to belong. The costs suffered are supported by non-compulsory donations of the members of Cocaine Anonymous and Cocaine Anonymous respectfully refuse any donations from outside.
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. For them, that union and understanding that could hardly come from other methods is easily struck when an addict talks to another addict.
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. The togetherness that exists among members of Cocaine Anonymous cannot be altered by any social background.
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.
