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.
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. Members of Cocaine Anonymous come from different ethnic, religious, social and economic backgrounds, though what they do share is their addiction.
The main prerequisite for enrolment is a craving to quit utilizing cocaine and all other mind-altering substances.
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. There are no charges to join Cocaine Anonymous; the group supports itself through members voluntary contributions.
In order to foot the bills for rent, coffee, literature and the programs meant to support struggling addicts, some voluntary contributions are sought. However, there should not be any feeling of compulsion when it comes to contributions in the case of newcomers. They don't acknowledge gifts from associations or people outside the cooperation.

There are no affiliations with other external organisations for Cocaine Anonymous, in the bid to avoid any complex issues. Cocaine Anonymous is a spiritual programme but does not identify itself with any religious group. Members of Cocaine Anonymous choose their spiritual path to follow. Cocaine Anonymous has no particular views about other external matters, though the members have the right to harbour and express their individual views. 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.
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.
All Cocaine Anonymous focuses on is to help recovering addicts overcome their 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.

All the people who show their commitment to quit cocaine use, including "crack" cocaine and other mentally dangerous substances can come to Cocaine Anonymous. There are no membership fees. Services and expenses for running the programme are raised from voluntary contributions given by members; we do not accept donations of any kind.
The Alcoholic Anonymous program that was developing in 1935 was adapted for this program. Cocaine Anonymous uses the Twelve Step Recovery Method crafted by AA that encourages serving others to help yourself in the battle for sobriety. The believe that addicts talking to each other can bring about a level of understanding and fellowship that can't be reached with other methods.
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. There rises a bond among Cocaine Anonymous individuals that upsurges above all other social limits.
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.
