“Cocaine Anonymous is not organized in the formal or political sense. There are no governing officers, no rules or
regulations, no dues or fees. While we are guided by the Twelve Traditions of Cocaine Anonymous, each group is generally
free to conduct its business as it sees fit, as stated in Tradition 4: ‘Each group should be autonomous except in matters
affecting other groups or C.A. as a whole.’
“However, the need for services to addicts throughout the world is very important to the Fellowship. Inquiries from both
within and outside the Fellowship have to be answered. Literature has to be written, printed and distributed, and requests
for help be followed up. The main service body of the Fellowship is C.A. World Services, which is centered at the World
Service Office in Los Angeles, California. Here employees and service volunteers maintain communications with local
Groups and with persons outside the Fellowship who turn to C.A. for information on the program of recovery. C.A.
Conference-approved literature and chips are prepared, published and distributed through this office.
The Service Structure of C.A.
“The World Service Office, through its Board of Directors, is responsible to the World Service Board of Trustees. The
Trustees, who serve as custodians of the Traditions of Cocaine Anonymous, as well as interpreters of policies affecting C.
A. as a whole, in turn are responsible to the World Service Conference.
“The World Service Conference meets annually to unify the Fellowship and consider those actions which affect the
Fellowship as a whole. Comprised of Delegates from all the recognized Areas of C.A., as well as the Trustees and the
World Service Office Board, the Conference considers how best to carry the message of recovery from addiction to those
outside, as well as inside, the meeting rooms of Cocaine Anonymous. Committees of the Conference cover various areas
that affect carrying that message of recovery: Literature, Hospitals and Institutions, Public Information, Convention
(responsible for the annual World Service Convention), and Unity. Other Committees address the internal functions of the
Fellowship: Conference, Finance, and Structure & Bylaws.
“All of the service structure of C.A. is based on our 9th Tradition: “C.A. as such ought never be organized, but we may
create service boards or committees directly responsible to those they serve.’”
