Cocaine Anonymous is an association of men and women who share their strengths, hopes and experiences with each other so that they might figure out their common issue, and assist other people to recover from their dependency.
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. Cocaine Anonymous individuals originate from different social, ethnic, monetary and religious foundations, yet what they have similar is addiction.
The qualifying criteria to be a member is that one wants to quit using cocaine and other substances of abuse.
Any individual who needs to quit utilizing cocaine and all other personality modifying substances (counting liquor and different medications) is welcome. There are no levies or charges for enrolment; we are completely self-supporting through our own particular commitments.
In order to foot the bills for rent, coffee, literature and the programs meant to support struggling addicts, some voluntary contributions are sought. There is no pressure to contribute especially for the new members if they are not in a position to give. 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. In order to remain free of controversy, we don't support or oppose any causes.
To maintain integrity and stay away from controversy, Cocaine Anonymous do not align with any outside groups. Cocaine Anonymous uses spirituality as part of the program, but they do not identify with any one religion. Cocaine Anonymous individuals are allowed to characterize their deep sense of being as they see fit. Though individual members may have their own opinions, Cocaine Anonymous as an entity do not have any opinions on external affairs. 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.
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.

For anyone who comes to Cocaine Anonymous for help, the Fellowship only wishes to help with recovery and helping individuals stay sober. Though Cocaine Anonymous members may get into drug education, propaganda, psychiatric and medical treatment, and drug addiction research, the body does not engage in any of these as an organisation.
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. 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. The closeness that results in members of Cocaine Anonymous is very healthy, cutting across social differences.
Cocaine Anonymous hold consistent gatherings to promote this association and to permit new individuals to discover them and, maybe, the responses they look for.
