OUR STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: The Co-Anon Family Groups have but one purpose-to help the family members and friends of someone who is addicted to cocaine or other mind-altering substances. We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps of Cocaine Anonymous ourselves, by understanding addiction and carrying the message of hope and personal recovery whether the addict is using or not. It is through this fellowship that we learn to cope with our difficulties by sharing our experience, strength, and hope with others.
The 12 Steps
- We admitted we were powerless over cocaine and all other mind-altering substances- that our lives had become unmanageable.
- Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
The 12 Traditions
- Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends on Co-Anon unity.
- For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority – a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience. Our leaders are but trusted servants-- they do no govern.
