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.
Interacting with people in a language they are familiar with is the best method. 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.
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.
Cocaine Anonymous will ask for voluntary donations to cover things like coffee, rent, literature, and services that will help people who are still suffering. There is no pressure to contribute especially for the new members if they are not in a position to give. They don't acknowledge gifts from associations or people outside the cooperation.
Cocaine Anonymous is also independent of any religion, political affiliation, organization, or institution. No causes are endorsed or opposed by the group and we do not get into any controversial acts and topics.
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 members are able to define their own spirituality in the way that best helps them. As a group, Cocaine Anonymous does not have a stand on any issue outside the programme but, members are free to form their opinions. Majority of the hospital's, recovery houses and rehabs send their patients to Cocaine Anonymous to help them remain sober, but we don't have any affiliation with them.
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.
The main reason for Cocaine Anonymous is to offer recuperation to people who are experiencing addiction. Individual experience has demonstrated that the best approach to achieve and keep up sobriety is to work with others experiencing a similar illness.
Cocaine Anonymous employ the 12 steps of recovery as it has already been shown that this recovery programme is effective.
The complete healing and maintenance of sobriety for people who come to her for assistance is the major task of Cocaine Anonymous 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.
All the people who show their commitment to quit cocaine use, including "crack" cocaine and other mentally dangerous substances can come to Cocaine Anonymous. 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 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. For them, that union and understanding that could hardly come from other methods is easily struck when an addict talks to another addict.
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.
