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.
Anyone who wants to stop using cocaine, "crack" cocaine, or any other mind altering drug is invited to some to Cocaine Anonymous. No membership fees and dues are involved. Services and expenses for running the programme are raised from voluntary contributions given by members; we do not accept donations of any kind.
The program that was designed by Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935 is being used for recovery. Like AA, Cocaine Anonymous implements the Twelve Step method, which emphasizes service to others as the way to recovery. For them, that union and understanding that could hardly come from other methods is easily struck when an addict talks to another addict.
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 bond that develops between Cocaine Anonymous members is stronger than other social relationships.
Regular meetings are held by Cocaine Anonymous to help these bonds grow and provide an opportunity for new members to join to gain the assistance they are after.
