Cocaine Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength  
and hope with each other 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.

                       "In the spirit of Tradition Six, C.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution"
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 Recovery Program, because it has already been proven that the Twelve Step
Recovery Program works.

                                         C.A.'s Purpose

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 cocaine, including "
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. We are not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution.

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
Cocaine Anonymous began in Los Angeles in 1982, and has since expanded throughout the United States
and Canada, with groups now forming in
