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.
Interacting with people in a language they are familiar with is the best method. 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.
To join, the only requirement is wanting to stop using cocaine and all other substances.
Any person who desires to quit using cocaine and all the other drugs that produce mood changes (including alcohol and other substances) is very welcome. The major factor is to support the group through voluntary contributions, so no mandatory payments are demanded.
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. That said, new members shouldn't feel obligated to give. No outside funds are received either from individuals or organisations.
Cocaine Anonymous is not affiliated with any group whether political or religious, organisation or institution of any kind. Cocaine Anonymous don't want to become engaged in any controversial matter and don't oppose/endorse any causes.
Cocaine Anonymous does not work with any organisation to protect its values and credibility. Although they are a spiritual programme, Cocaine Anonymous link with no religion. Members of Cocaine Anonymous are free to describe their own spirituality as they view appropriate. Though individual members may have their own opinions, Cocaine Anonymous as an entity do not have any opinions on external affairs. 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 utilize the Twelve Steps of Recovery, since it has as of now been demonstrated that the Twelve-Step recuperation program works.
Cocaine Anonymous is only concerned with the individual recovery and on-going sobriety of the individual substance addict who approaches them for assistance. 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.
Cocaine Anonymous is open to everyone who communicates a wish to quit using cocaine, including other drugs that produce mood changes and "crack" cocaine. No membership fees and dues are involved. The costs suffered are supported by non-compulsory donations of the members of Cocaine Anonymous and Cocaine Anonymous respectfully refuse any donations from outside.
The recovery programme was modified from the Alcoholics Anonymous programme which was devised 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. 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.
For someone desperately searching for hope about their own addiction, hearing from someone who has recovered and is passing on the experience is a really powerful message. The closeness that results in members of Cocaine Anonymous is very healthy, cutting across social differences.
Cocaine Anonymous hold consistent gatherings to promote this association and to permit new individuals to discover them and, maybe, the responses they look for.
