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.
The most ideal approach to contact somebody is to address them on a typical level. 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. Though the problem of addiction is what binds these people together, they are drawn from different economic, ethnic, social and religious backgrounds.
The desire to quit using cocaine and other substances that affect the functioning of the brain is what makes one a member.
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.
In order to foot the bills for rent, coffee, literature and the programs meant to support struggling addicts, some voluntary contributions are sought. Though, a newcomer does not need to feel as if he/she is compelled to make a contribution. 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. We don't wish to participate in any contention and we neither underwrite nor contradict any causes.
There are no affiliations with other external organisations for Cocaine Anonymous, in the bid to avoid any complex issues. Although they are a spiritual programme, Cocaine Anonymous link with no religion. Members of Cocaine Anonymous choose their spiritual path to follow. While each member is free to have opinions of their own, Cocaine Anonymous does not officially have an opinion on outside issues. 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' 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 sole function of Cocaine Anonymous is to provide recovery to those who are battling with addiction. Collaborating with people who suffer the same ailment has been discovered as the best method of becoming and remaining sober.
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. 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 one has to pay dues or fees to belong. The costs caused are upheld by the intentional commitments of Cocaine Anonymous individuals. They consciously decline every single outside commitment.
The program that was designed by Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935 is being used for recovery. The Twelve Step recovery method from AA, which states that your own recovery is aided when you help others, is used by Cocaine Anonymous. It is believed that a person with experience is better placed to understand and empathise with one struggling with the same addiction.
The way that an individual has recuperated from their fixation and is unreservedly passing this experience on to the following individual, is an intense message for somebody who is frantically hunting down a solution to their own addiction. 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.
