Cocaine Anonymous is a support group of men and women who help each other through recovery by sharing their experiences, strength, and hope.
Talking to someone on a common level is the best way to get through. Cocaine Anonymous members are all recovering addicts who help each other keep away from the drug by working together. Members of Cocaine Anonymous come from different ethnic, religious, social and economic backgrounds, though what they do share is their addiction.
A wish to quit using cocaine and all the other drugs that produce mood changes is the only requirement in order to become a member.
Any individual who needs to quit utilizing cocaine and all other personality modifying substances (counting liquor and different medications) is 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. However, there should not be any feeling of compulsion when it comes to contributions in the case of newcomers. 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 stay focused and not be involved in arguments and debates, we do not align ourselves with any other cause.
Cocaine Anonymous are not allied with any external organisation in order to prevent any possible complications and to remain honest. Although they are a spiritual programme, Cocaine Anonymous link with no religion. The definition of their individual spiritual life as they want is an exclusive right of all Cocaine Anonymous members. Though individual members may have their own opinions, Cocaine Anonymous as an entity do not have any opinions on external affairs. 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' main goal is for their members to stay off of cocaine and other mind altering drugs and to help other members achieve the same goals.
All Cocaine Anonymous focuses on is to help recovering addicts overcome their 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 utilize the Twelve Steps of Recovery, since it has as of now been demonstrated that the Twelve-Step recuperation program works.
Cocaine Anonymous is concerned exclusively with the individual recuperation and preceded with restraint of individual drug addicts who swing to the Fellowship for assistance. Cocaine Anonymous is not involved in any research, treatment whether medical or psychiatric, education or any misrepresentations of facts,- members are free to engage in anything outside the programme.
Anyone who wants to stop using cocaine, "crack" cocaine, or any other mind altering drug is invited to some to Cocaine Anonymous. No membership fees and dues are involved. While all external helps are refused politely, voluntary donations from members are used to settle all bills by Cocaine Anonymous.
The program of rehabilitation was adjusted from the program created by Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935. 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. It is believed that a person with experience is better placed to understand and empathise with one struggling with the same addiction.
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.
Regular meetings are held by Cocaine Anonymous to help these bonds grow and provide an opportunity for new members to join to gain the assistance they are after.
