A group of men and women who come together to share their drug use experience, strength, and hope in the bid to defeat their common problem and assist others in their struggle to do so is named Cocaine Anonymous.
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. Though the problem of addiction is what binds these people together, they are drawn from different economic, ethnic, social and religious backgrounds.
To join, the only requirement is wanting to stop using cocaine and all other substances.
All are welcome who are fighting cocaine and other substances including alcohol and other mind altering drugs. There are no membership fees; Cocaine Anonymous is completely self-supporting via our own donations.
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. In any case, newcomers require not feel committed to contribute. No outside funds are received either from individuals or organisations.
Cocaine Anonymous are not aligned with any group, section, legislative issues, association or foundation. No causes are endorsed or opposed by the group and we do not get into any controversial acts and topics.
Cocaine Anonymous are not allied with any external organisation in order to prevent any possible complications and to remain honest. Although they are a spiritual programme, Cocaine Anonymous link with no religion. Members of Cocaine Anonymous are free to describe their own spirituality as they view appropriate. While each member is free to have opinions of their own, Cocaine Anonymous does not officially have an opinion on outside issues. 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.
Offering help to addicts to have a successful recovery is the only purpose 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.
Cocaine Anonymous employ the 12 steps of recovery as it has already been shown that this recovery programme is effective.
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 take part in the fields of drug enslavement research, restorative or psychiatric treatment, sedate training or promulgation in any shape, in spite of the fact that individuals may take an interest in such exercises as people.
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. 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.
The way that an individual has recuperated from their fixation and is unreservedly passing this experience on to the following individual, is an intense message for somebody who is frantically hunting down a solution to their own addiction. There rises a bond among Cocaine Anonymous individuals that upsurges above all other social limits.
In the bid to instil this togetherness in the newcomers and to let them discover the unity that is shared, and maybe the solution to their individual addiction issues, constant meetings are held by Cocaine Anonymous.
