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.
The ultimate way to reach a person is to chat with him/her on a shared level. Those who belong to Cocaine Anonymous are all addicts who are recovering and remain sober by working together with other people. 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.
Anyone who wants to stop using cocaine, alcohol, or any other mind altering substance is welcome at Cocaine Anonymous. There are no levies or charges for enrolment; we are completely self-supporting through our own particular commitments.
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. There is no pressure to contribute especially for the new members if they are not in a position to give. They don't accept any contributions from people/organisations that are not part of the association.
Cocaine Anonymous is also independent of any religion, political affiliation, organization, or institution. We don't wish to participate in any contention and we neither underwrite nor contradict any causes.
There are no affiliations with other external organisations for Cocaine Anonymous, in the bid to avoid any complex issues. Cocaine Anonymous uses spirituality as part of the program, but they do not identify with any one 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.
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 main reason for Cocaine Anonymous is to offer recuperation to people who are experiencing addiction. 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.
The Twelve Steps of Recovery is used by Cocaine Anonymous, due to its proven positive effects.
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.
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. While all external helps are refused politely, voluntary donations from members are used to settle all bills by Cocaine Anonymous.
The recovery programme was modified from the Alcoholics Anonymous programme which was devised in 1935. Like AA, Cocaine Anonymous implements the Twelve Step method, which emphasizes service to others as the way to recovery. They feel that someone who is addicted conversing with another can give a level of common comprehension and association that is difficult to get through different techniques.
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 hold consistent gatherings to promote this association and to permit new individuals to discover them and, maybe, the responses they look for.
