Cocaine Anonymous in California, United States Directory

California is the most populated state in the U.S – with its beautiful sun, architectural marvels, bustling industries, and its deep blue ocean – 39.54 million people are proud to call the state home. However, like many other states in the U.S, drug abuse and addiction remains to be a growing problem in the Golden State. According to the United Health Foundation, California’s drug mortality rate grew from 11.4 to 11.8 people per 100,000 of the California population from the years 2016 through 2017. While these figures are relatively low compared to the drug mortality rates of other states, they are still a source of concern: taking the massive population to account, California is the state with the most drug overdose deaths each year. With these problems continuing to grow, many people that struggle with addiction wonder why they feel alone and what can be done to help them. This is where we come in. We own and partner with several Orange County Rehab for the purpose of helping those that are struggling with addiction in the hopes that we can help guide their path toward recovery.

Cocaine Anonymous is a 12-step program where men and women can gather (both in person and online) to discuss their struggles with drug addiction and work toward recovery. Despite cocaine being in the name, the fellowship is not only for cocaine addicts. On its website it states: “The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using cocaine and all other mind-altering substances.”

The organization was founded in 1982, in Los Angeles, by a film industry professional who struggled with his own addiction and wanted a group that would focus on the challenges unique to cocaine abuse and dependence.

While Cocaine Anonymous is not affiliated with Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), it does share much of the structure. (Its founder is said to have first been a member of AA.)

As a result, Cocaine Anonymous (CA) incorporates AA’s Big Book as well as some complementary CA-specific texts into the program. It is open to all genders, ages, races, backgrounds, and religions, and while it does not align itself with or follow any specific faith, it does consider itself a spiritual program. The main goal is to overcome addiction.

Meetings typically open with the Serenity Prayer (“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change…”). Afterwards, newer members and guests introduce themselves. That’s followed by a time to ask questions and discuss accomplishments, setbacks, and challenges. 

There is no cost to attend, but individual chapters are self-sustaining so members may chip in a  small amount if they can manage it.
