We also have a brand guide available here. A strong and professional brand identity will build our credibility and trust – inspiring confidence in the message, whether to the still suffering addict, the fellowship, professionals, or the public at large.

C.A. Public Information Policy

Cocaine Anonymous has adopted the following as its Public Information Policy:

In all public relations, C.A.’s sole objective is to help the still -suffering addict. Always mindful of the importance of personal anonymity, we believe this can be done by making known to him/her and to those who may be interested in his/her problem, our own experience as individuals and as a Fellowship in learning to live without cocaine and all other mind-altering substances**

We believe that our experience should be made available freely to all who express sincere interest. We believe further that all our efforts in this field should always reflect our gratitude for the gift of sobriety and our awareness that many outside C.A. are equally concerned with the serious problem of addiction.

Information and public relations matters affecting the Fellowship as a whole are the concern of Public Information Committee of the Cocaine Anonymous World Services.

Reporters are welcome at open meetings and events of C.A., with prior approval of the local service body. The only restriction is a request to bear in mind the importance of anonymity, by not disclosing the name of any C.A. member. For obvious reason, cameras are not permitted at C.A. meetings.

In many areas, C.A. members have formed local committees on public information and cooperation with the professional community, to assist local media in obtaining accurate information about our Fellowship.
