Cocaine Anonymous is a support group of men and women who help each other through recovery by sharing their experiences, strength, and hope.
To succeed in helping someone, it is best to meet them where they are at. Those who belong to Cocaine Anonymous are all addicts who are recovering and remain sober by working together with other people. Members of Cocaine Anonymous come from different ethnic, religious, social and economic backgrounds, though what they do share is their addiction.
The qualifying criteria to be a member is that one wants to quit using cocaine and other substances of abuse.
Anyone who wants to stop using cocaine, alcohol, or any other mind altering substance is welcome at Cocaine Anonymous. There are no charges to join Cocaine Anonymous; the group supports itself through members voluntary contributions.
Cocaine Anonymous will ask for voluntary donations to cover things like coffee, rent, literature, and services that will help people who are still suffering. However, there should not be any feeling of compulsion when it comes to contributions in the case of newcomers. They do not take any donations or contributions from anyone outside of the group.
The Cocaine Anonymous does not liaise with any institution, organisation, politics, denomination or sect No causes are endorsed or opposed by the group and we do not get into any controversial acts and topics.
Keeping in mind the end goal to keep up honesty and maintain a strategic distance from any conceivable entanglements, Cocaine Anonymous are not associated with any outside association. Cocaine Anonymous is a spiritual programme but does not identify itself with any religious group. Cocaine Anonymous individuals are allowed to characterize their deep sense of being as they see fit. Individual partakers may have feelings of their own; however Cocaine Anonymous in general has no assessment 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.
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.
The main reason for Cocaine Anonymous is to offer recuperation to people who are experiencing 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 employ the 12 steps of recovery as it has already been shown that this recovery programme is effective.
For anyone who comes to Cocaine Anonymous for help, the Fellowship only wishes to help with recovery and helping individuals stay sober. 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.
Anyone in trouble with cocaine, "crack" cocaine or any other substance of abuse and needs help are welcome to Cocaine Anonymous. There are no membership fees. The costs caused are upheld by the intentional commitments of Cocaine Anonymous individuals. They consciously decline every single outside commitment.
The program of rehabilitation was adjusted from the program created by Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935. 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.
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 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.
