A group of men and women who come together to share their drug use experience, strength, and hope in the bid to defeat their common problem and assist others in their struggle to do so is named Cocaine Anonymous.
The ultimate way to reach a person is to chat with him/her on a shared level. Everyone who belongs to Cocaine Anonymous is recovering from addiction and is able to stay sober through working with others. Cocaine Anonymous individuals originate from different social, ethnic, monetary and religious foundations, yet what they have similar is addiction.
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. There is no pressure to contribute especially for the new members if they are not in a position to give. No outside funds are received either from individuals or organisations.
Cocaine Anonymous are not in partnership with any denomination, institution, sect, political group or organisation. No causes are endorsed or opposed by the group and we do not get into any controversial acts and topics.
Cocaine Anonymous does not work with any organisation to protect its values and credibility. Cocaine Anonymous uses spirituality as part of the program, but they do not identify with any one religion. Members of Cocaine Anonymous are free to describe their own spirituality as they view appropriate. 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 connected with any rehabilitations, hospitals or recovery houses, though several of these places do refer people to Cocaine Anonymous to keep them sober.
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.
Offering help to addicts to have a successful recovery is the only purpose of Cocaine Anonymous. It is a proven fact that to overcome addiction and remain sober, the only way it is obtainable is to associate and work alongside others like you.
The Twelve Steps of Recovery is used by Cocaine Anonymous, due to its proven positive effects.
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 interested in all people who express a longing to quit using cocaine, including "crack" cocaine and also all other personality altering substances. There are no membership fees. 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. Cocaine Anonymous uses the Twelve Step Recovery Method crafted by AA that encourages serving others to help yourself in the battle for sobriety. It is believed that a person with experience is better placed to understand and empathise with one struggling with the same addiction.
Those in desperate need of help and understanding, talking with someone who has been through the same works great and gives them confidence that they too can overcome. The bond that develops between Cocaine Anonymous members is stronger than other social relationships.
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.
