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.
Talking to someone on a common level is the best way to get through. 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 main prerequisite for enrolment is a craving to quit utilizing cocaine and all other mind-altering substances.
So far as you desire to quit using cocaine and other substances that hamper the functioning of the brain (including alcohol and other drugs), you are highly welcome. There are no levies or charges for enrolment; we are completely self-supporting through our own particular commitments.
Cocaine Anonymous will ask for voluntary donations to cover things like coffee, rent, literature, and services that will help people who are still suffering. In any case, newcomers require not feel committed to contribute. No outside funds are received either from individuals or organisations.
Cocaine Anonymous are not in partnership with any denomination, institution, sect, political group or organisation. Cocaine Anonymous don't want to become engaged in any controversial matter and don't oppose/endorse any causes.
To maintain integrity and stay away from controversy, Cocaine Anonymous do not align with any outside groups. In spite of the fact that Cocaine Anonymous is a spirituality program, they don't adjust themselves to any religion. Members of Cocaine Anonymous choose their spiritual path to follow. 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.
The purpose for which Cocaine Anonymous was formed was to help members stop cocaine and other addictive substances and remain clean while encouraging others to achieve the same success.
The sole function of Cocaine Anonymous is to provide recovery to those who are battling with 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 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.
Cocaine Anonymous is interested in all people who express a longing to quit using cocaine, including "crack" cocaine and also all other personality altering substances. There are no membership fees. 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. The Twelve Step recovery method from AA, which states that your own recovery is aided when you help others, is used by Cocaine Anonymous. 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. The bond that develops between Cocaine Anonymous members is stronger than other social relationships.
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.
