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.
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. Though the problem of addiction is what binds these people together, they are drawn from different economic, ethnic, social and religious backgrounds.
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.
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. Though, a newcomer does not need to feel as if he/she is compelled to make a contribution. 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. 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. Cocaine Anonymous individuals are allowed to characterize their deep sense of being as they see fit. As a group, Cocaine Anonymous does not have a stand on any issue outside the programme but, members are free to form their opinions. 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.
The main purpose of Cocaine Anonymous is to remain free from cocaine and all the other drugs that produce mood changes and to assist other people to get the exact same freedom.
Offering help to addicts to have a successful recovery is the only purpose of Cocaine Anonymous. Personal experience has illustrated that the best manner to become and remain sober is to work together with other people who battle with the same.
The Twelve Steps of Recovery is used by Cocaine Anonymous, due to its proven positive effects.
The sole purpose Cocaine Anonymous is to help individuals who come for help stop cocaine and other drug use and remain free. Cocaine Anonymous don't take part in the fields of drug enslavement research, restorative or psychiatric treatment, sedate training or promulgation in any shape, in spite of the fact that individuals may take an interest in such exercises as people.
Anyone in trouble with cocaine, "crack" cocaine or any other substance of abuse and needs help are welcome to Cocaine Anonymous. There is no levy or charges for membership. The costs caused are upheld by the intentional commitments of Cocaine Anonymous individuals. They consciously decline every single outside commitment.
The Alcoholic Anonymous program that was developing in 1935 was adapted for this program. Like AA, Cocaine Anonymous implements the Twelve Step method, which emphasizes service to others as the way to recovery. It is believed that a person with experience is better placed to understand and empathise with one struggling with the same addiction.
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. There rises a bond among Cocaine Anonymous individuals that upsurges above all other social limits.
To further their fellowship, Cocaine Anonymous has regular meetings where new members can find them and get help with the answers they're looking for.
