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. The individuals from Cocaine Anonymous are all recouping addicts who keep up their individual sobriety by working with others. Cocaine Anonymous does not discriminate against members either on the social, race, economic or religious status, they focus on what they all share, the addiction to cocaine.
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. Because the program is completely self-supporting with contributions, there are no fees or dues for membership.
In order to foot the bills for rent, coffee, literature and the programs meant to support struggling addicts, some voluntary contributions are sought. Though, a newcomer does not need to feel as if he/she is compelled to make a contribution. Monetary contributions from people that are not their members are not welcome.

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.
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 togetherness that exists among members of Cocaine Anonymous cannot be altered by any social background.
