Cocaine Anonymous is a support group of men and women who help each other through recovery by sharing their experiences, strength, and hope.
The ultimate way to reach a person is to chat with him/her on a shared level. Cocaine Anonymous members are all recovering addicts who help each other keep away from the drug by working together. Though the problem of addiction is what binds these people together, they are drawn from different economic, ethnic, social and religious backgrounds.
The qualifying criteria to be a member is that one wants to quit using cocaine and other substances of abuse.
All are welcome who are fighting cocaine and other substances including alcohol and other mind altering drugs. Because the program is completely self-supporting with contributions, there are no fees or dues for membership.
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. However, there should not be any feeling of compulsion when it comes to contributions in the case of newcomers. They don't acknowledge gifts from associations or people outside the cooperation.
Cocaine Anonymous is not affiliated with any group whether political or religious, organisation or institution of any kind. 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. Cocaine Anonymous is a spiritual programme but does not identify itself with any religious group. Cocaine Anonymous members are able to define their own spirituality in the way that best helps them. Individual partakers may have feelings of their own; however Cocaine Anonymous in general has no assessment on outside issues. 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.
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.
All Cocaine Anonymous focuses on is to help recovering addicts overcome their 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.
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. Cocaine Anonymous is not involved in any research, treatment whether medical or psychiatric, education or any misrepresentations of facts,- members are free to engage in anything outside the programme.
Cocaine Anonymous is open to everyone who communicates a wish to quit using cocaine, including other drugs that produce mood changes and "crack" cocaine. No one has to pay dues or fees to belong. The costs caused are upheld by the intentional commitments of Cocaine Anonymous individuals. They consciously decline every single outside commitment.
Cocaine Anonymous was developed on the foundation of Alcoholic Anonymous in 1935. Like AA, Cocaine Anonymous utilizes the Twelve Step recuperation strategy which includes services to others as a way towards recuperation from enslavement. It is believed that a person with experience is better placed to understand and empathise with one struggling with the same addiction.
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. There rises a bond among Cocaine Anonymous individuals that upsurges above all other social limits.
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.
