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.
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. Although Cocaine Anonymous members come from a variety of social, ethnic, economic, and religions backgrounds, the one thing the share is their addiction.
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. Because the program is completely self-supporting with contributions, there are no fees or dues for membership.
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. 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 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.
Cocaine Anonymous are not allied with any external organisation in order to prevent any possible complications and to remain honest. Cocaine Anonymous uses spirituality as part of the program, but they do not identify with any one religion. Cocaine Anonymous members are able to define their own spirituality in the way that best helps them. Individual partakers may have feelings of their own; however Cocaine Anonymous in general has no assessment on outside issues. Though not connected to any rehab centres, recovery homes or medical facilities, Cocaine Anonymous do recommend these service providers to their patients for assistance in getting clean.
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.
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.
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 open to everyone who communicates a wish to quit using cocaine, including other drugs that produce mood changes and "crack" cocaine. There is no levy or charges for membership. While all external helps are refused politely, voluntary donations from members are used to settle all bills by Cocaine Anonymous.
The Alcoholic Anonymous program that was developing in 1935 was adapted for this program. Cocaine Anonymous uses the Twelve Step Recovery Method crafted by AA that encourages serving others to help yourself in the battle for sobriety. 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. There rises a bond among Cocaine Anonymous individuals that upsurges above all other social limits.
Cocaine Anonymous hold consistent gatherings to promote this association and to permit new individuals to discover them and, maybe, the responses they look for.
