Alcoholism Rehab Help – Alcoholics Anonymous® is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety through the 12 step process. Copyright © by The A.A. Grapevine, Inc.

Narcotics Anonymous is a 12-step program adapted from AA. The primary difference between the two is that NA is more inclusive with respect to addiction to any mood-altering substance. Cocaine Anonymous (CA) is a smaller group geared specifically to cocaine addiction, as the name implies. NA and CA, like the many other 12-step programs AA has spawned, adhere to the same philosophy and beliefs as AA. The underlying belief is that most aspects of chemical addiction are transcendent rather than specific to any particular drug.
