What Is Cocaine Anonymous?
is a fellowship of men and women who share their
experience, strength and hope with each other so that they may solve their
common problem and help others to recover from their addiction. The only
requirement for membership is a desire to stop using cocaine and all other
mind-altering substances. There are no dues or fees for membership; we are fully
self supporting through our own contributions. We are not allied with any sect,
denomination, politics, organization, or institution. We do not wish to engage
in any controversy and we neither endorse nor oppose any causes. Our primary
purpose is to stay free from cocaine and all other mind-altering substances, and
to help others achieve the same freedom.
We use the Twelve Step
because it has already been proven that the Twelve Step
Recovery Program works."
C.A. is concerned solely with the personal recovery and continued sobriety
of individual drug addicts who turn to our Fellowship for help. We
do not engage in the fields of drug addiction research, medical or
psychiatric treatment, drug education, or propaganda in any form — although
members may participate in such activities as individuals.
Cocaine Anonymous is open to all persons who state a desire to stop using
"crack" cocaine, as well as all
other mind-altering substances. There are no dues or fees for membership.
Our expenses are supported by the voluntary contributions of our
members — we respectfully decline all outside contributions.

Our program of recovery was adapted from the program developed by Alcoholics
Anonymous in 1935. Like AA (with which we are not affiliated), we
use the Twelve Step recovery method, which involves service to others
as a path towards recovery from addiction. We feel that one addict
talking to another can provide a level of mutual understanding and
fellowship that is hard to obtain through other methods. The fact
that an individual has recovered from their addiction, and is freely
passing this experience on to the next person, is a powerful message
for someone who is desperately searching for an answer to their own
addiction. There emerges a bond among us that transcends all other
social boundaries. We hold regular meetings to further this fellowship,
and to allow new members to find us and, perhaps, the answers they seek.
This calculator can be used as a count down clock too!
Just enter a future date, for example our next CA convention's date, and it will show you how many days away it is! (*note: there will be a minus sign in front of the number of days to express the date is in the future not the past!)
