Cocaine Anonymous is an association of men and ladies who share their experience, attributes and trust with each other that they may tackle their normal issue plus help other people to recuperate from their enslavement.
Talking to someone on a common level is the best way to get through. 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.
The desire to quit using cocaine and other substances that affect the functioning of the brain is what makes one a member.
All are welcome who are fighting cocaine and other substances including alcohol and other mind altering drugs. The major factor is to support the group through voluntary contributions, so no mandatory payments are demanded.
In order to foot the bills for rent, coffee, literature and the programs meant to support struggling addicts, some voluntary contributions are sought. Though, a newcomer does not need to feel as if he/she is compelled to make a contribution. Monetary contributions from people that are not their members are not welcome.
Cocaine Anonymous is also independent of any religion, political affiliation, organization, or institution. In order to stay focused and not be involved in arguments and debates, we do not align ourselves with any other cause.
Cocaine Anonymous does not work with any organisation to protect its values and credibility. 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. They are not partnered with any rehabs, recuperation houses or healing centres, however many do allude their patients to Cocaine Anonymous to keep up their balance.
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.
Offering help to addicts to have a successful recovery is the only purpose of Cocaine Anonymous. Personal experience has illustrated that the best manner to become and remain sober is to work together with other people who battle with the same.
Cocaine Anonymous employ the 12 steps of recovery as it has already been shown that this recovery programme is effective.
Cocaine Anonymous is concerned exclusively with the individual recuperation and preceded with restraint of individual drug addicts who swing to the Fellowship for assistance. 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.
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 membership fees and dues are involved. Expenses are paid through voluntary contributions from Cocaine Anonymous members and they do not accept outside help.
The recovery programme was modified from the Alcoholics Anonymous programme which was devised 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. 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.
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.
To further their fellowship, Cocaine Anonymous has regular meetings where new members can find them and get help with the answers they're looking for.
