Interacting with people in a language they are familiar with is the best method.

The recovery programme was modified from the Alcoholics Anonymous programme which was devised in 1935. The Twelve Step recovery method from AA, which states that your own recovery is aided when you help others, is used by Cocaine Anonymous. The believe that addicts talking to each other can bring about a level of understanding and fellowship that can't be reached with other methods.
For someone desperately searching for hope about their own addiction, hearing from someone who has recovered and is passing on the experience is a really powerful message. The togetherness that exists among members of Cocaine Anonymous cannot be altered by any social background.
In the bid to instil this togetherness in the newcomers and to let them discover the unity that is shared, and maybe the solution to their individual addiction issues, constant meetings are held by Cocaine Anonymous.
