Cocaine Anonymous

Cocaine Anonymous

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cocaine Anonymous (CA), is a Twelve Step Program form people addicted to cocaine and possibly other drugs. As of 2007, there are several thousand CA groups in the US, Canada and 10 other countries. CA was formed in Los Angeles in 1982 by a long-standing Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) member. He worked in the film industry and saw a number of people who had difficulty finding help from anyone knowledgeable about the special difficulties presented by cocaine addiction. CocAnon is a program for families of cocaine users, analogous to Al-Anon for the friends and family of alcoholics.[1]

CA uses the basic texts of AA, Alcoholics Anonymous[2] and the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions[3] in addition to their own text, Hope, Faith and Courage: Stories from the Fellowship of Cocaine Anonymous.[4]
