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 most ideal approach to contact somebody is to address them on a typical level. Everyone who belongs to Cocaine Anonymous is recovering from addiction and is able to stay sober through working with others. Though the problem of addiction is what binds these people together, they are drawn from different economic, ethnic, social and religious backgrounds.
The desire to quit using cocaine and other substances that affect the functioning of the brain is what makes one a member.
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 will ask for voluntary donations to cover things like coffee, rent, literature, and services that will help people who are still suffering. That said, new members shouldn't feel obligated to give. They do not take any donations or contributions from anyone outside of the group.
Cocaine Anonymous are not in partnership with any denomination, institution, sect, political group or organisation. In order to stay focused and not be involved in arguments and debates, we do not align ourselves with any other cause.
There are no affiliations with other external organisations for Cocaine Anonymous, in the bid to avoid any complex issues. Cocaine Anonymous is a spiritual programme but does not identify itself with any religious group. The definition of their individual spiritual life as they want is an exclusive right of all Cocaine Anonymous members. 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 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.
All Cocaine Anonymous focuses on is to help recovering addicts overcome their 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 utilize the Twelve Steps of Recovery, since it has as of now been demonstrated that the Twelve-Step recuperation program works.
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. No membership fees and dues are involved. The costs caused are upheld by the intentional commitments of Cocaine Anonymous individuals. They consciously decline every single outside commitment.
The Alcoholic Anonymous program that was developing in 1935 was adapted for this program. Like AA, Cocaine Anonymous implements the Twelve Step method, which emphasizes service to others as the way to recovery. 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.
The fact that a person has made a recovery from his/her addiction, and is openly sharing this experience with the next individual, is a strong message for a person who's desperately looking for a solution for his/her own addiction. The closeness that results in members of Cocaine Anonymous is very healthy, cutting across social differences.
In the bid to instil this togetherness in the newcomers and to let them discover the unity that is shared, and maybe the solution to their individual addiction issues, constant meetings are held by Cocaine Anonymous.
