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.
A wish to quit using cocaine and all the other drugs that produce mood changes is the only requirement in order to become a member.
Any individual who needs to quit utilizing cocaine and all other personality modifying substances (counting liquor and different medications) is welcome. Because the program is completely self-supporting with contributions, there are no fees or dues for membership.
In order to foot the bills for rent, coffee, literature and the programs meant to support struggling addicts, some voluntary contributions are sought. However, there should not be any feeling of compulsion when it comes to contributions in the case of newcomers. No outside funds are received either from individuals or organisations.
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.
There are no affiliations with other external organisations for Cocaine Anonymous, in the bid to avoid any complex issues. Although they are a spiritual programme, Cocaine Anonymous link with no religion. The definition of their individual spiritual life as they want is an exclusive right of all Cocaine Anonymous members. 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.
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.
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 adopts the Twelve Steps of Recovery as it has seen great results from using the programme.
The complete healing and maintenance of sobriety for people who come to her for assistance is the major task of Cocaine Anonymous Although some members participate in things like drug addiction research, medical or psychiatric treatment, drug education, or propaganda on an individual level, Cocaine Anonymous does not participate as a fellowship.
Anyone in trouble with cocaine, "crack" cocaine or any other substance of abuse and needs help are welcome to Cocaine Anonymous. There is no levy or charges for membership. Services and expenses for running the programme are raised from voluntary contributions given by members; we do not accept donations of any kind.
The program that was designed by Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935 is being used for recovery. 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 believe that an addict chatting to another addict can offer a degree of shared understanding and partnership that's difficult to get via other manners.
For someone desperately searching for hope about their own addiction, hearing from someone who has recovered and is passing on the experience is a really powerful message. 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.
