Chemically Dependent Anonymous deals entirely with the disease of addiction. We of CDA do not make distinctions in the recovery process based on any particular substance, believing that the addictive-compulsive usage of chemicals is the core of our disease and the use of any mood-changing chemical will result in relapse.
CDA is not affiliated with any political, religious, or commercial organizations or institutions. The primary purpose of CDA as a whole is to remain clean and to help others like us gain recovery. By sharing our Experience, Strength, and Hope with each other, we solve our common problem and help others to recover from chemical dependence which has made our lives unmanageable.
CDA remains grateful to the co-founders and fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous for the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions which are the basis of our program.
