Cocaine Anonymous

  Cocaine Anonymous (CA) is a twelve-step program for people who share a common desire to recover from substance abuse and addiction, identifying specifically as a cocaine addict is not required.[1] CA uses the basic texts of Alcoholics Anonymous (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]

As of 2007, there are several thousand CA groups in the United States, Canada and ten other countries. CA was formed in Los Angeles in 1982 by a long-standing 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. Co-Anon (formerly CocAnon) is a program for families of cocaine users, analogous to Al-Anon for the friends and family of alcoholics.[5]
