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.
To succeed in helping someone, it is best to meet them where they are at. 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.
To join, the only requirement is wanting to stop using cocaine and all other substances.
Anyone who wants to stop using cocaine, alcohol, or any other mind altering substance is welcome at Cocaine Anonymous. There are no membership fees; Cocaine Anonymous is completely self-supporting via our own donations.
Cocaine Anonymous do request deliberate commitments at gatherings to cover costs, for example, espresso, lease, writing and administrations to help the individuals who are as yet enduring. However, there should not be any feeling of compulsion when it comes to contributions in the case of newcomers. Monetary contributions from people that are not their members are not welcome.
Cocaine Anonymous are not in partnership with any denomination, institution, sect, political group or organisation. No causes are endorsed or opposed by the group and we do not get into any controversial acts and topics.
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. There are no links between Cocaine Anonymous and any religious group or belief, even though it is a spiritually inclined programme. Members of Cocaine Anonymous are free to describe their own spirituality as they view appropriate. 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.
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.
All Cocaine Anonymous focuses on is to help recovering addicts overcome their addiction. People have demonstrated that working with others who are coping with the same problems is the most effective way to get sober and stay clean.
Cocaine Anonymous adopts the Twelve Steps of Recovery as it has seen great results from using the programme.
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 don't participate in substance addiction research, psychiatric/medical treatment, substance education, or any form of advocacy, though members may take part in these activities in their individual capacity.
Anyone who wants to stop using cocaine, "crack" cocaine, or any other mind altering drug is invited to some to Cocaine Anonymous. There are no membership fees. 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. 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.
Those in desperate need of help and understanding, talking with someone who has been through the same works great and gives them confidence that they too can overcome. There develops a bond amongst the members of Cocaine Anonymous that goes beyond all of the other social restrictions.
Cocaine Anonymous host frequent meetings to expand this partnership, and to enable brand new members to locate them and, possibly, the solutions that they are looking for.
