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.

The program that was designed by Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935 is being used for recovery. Cocaine Anonymous uses the Twelve Step Recovery Method crafted by AA that encourages serving others to help yourself in the battle for sobriety. 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 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.
