Definition of Cocaine Anonymous

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.  C.A. is 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.

C.A.'s Position in the Field of Addiction

CA is concerned solely with the personal recovery and continued sobriety of individual addicts who turn to the fellowship for help. Cocaine Anonymous does not engage in the fields of drug addiction research, medical or psychiatric treatment, education, or propaganda in any form, although members may participate in such activities as individuals.

The Fellowship has adopted a policy of "cooperation but not affiliation" with outside organizations concerned with the problem of addiction. CA never endorses, supports, becomes affiliated with or expresses an opinion on the programs of others in the field of addiction. CA has no position on outside issues including the legality or illegality of drugs or any other public policy.

C.A.'s relations with professional groups, agencies, facilities, and individuals involved with the problems of drug addiction are handled by the Public Information Committee. Mutual understanding and cooperation between CA members and others who work with addicts are the concerns of this standing committee of the World Service Office.
