Protecting C.A.’s Future by Preserving C.A.’s Legacy
September 1, 2021 – West County in the UK was ratified as new C.A. Area by the 37th World Service Conference.
July 2021: A brief five-year history of CA West County UK
Cocaine Anonymous West Country has had a very fruitful and fulfilling period over the last five years, and this continues today. We have a very well attended District and have good consistency with District office posts being filled.
We have 26 meetings a week, comprised of 24 groups, which are very well attended. In 2019 we had up to 30 meetings a week this drop is a result of Wales growing from our District and forming their own Area. This has been a huge blessing to C.A. as a whole in the spirit of unity and carrying the message of Hope, Faith and Courage. We have been supportive and encouraging as some of us remember the first C.A. meeting around 16 years ago and to see them now take this amazing step has been a joy.
Over the last six years we have put on C.A. West Country conventions every year, with the exception of 2020 due to the unforeseen situation we all found ourselves in, and have at least once a year held tradition and concepts workshops, these have always been received and attended well. We currently have an appointed DSR who has attended C.A. UK Area Service Committee meetings and we have always been able to make a donation to C.A.UK.
We have a very strong H&I committee. It has always done a great job going into prisons, treatment centres and detoxification units. We currently go to 8 facilities a month and search for other opportunities to carry our message of Hope, Faith and Courage, and We’re Here and We’re Free. We have maintained good relationships with the above.
P.I. is a very passionate committee, always looking for new ways to navigate positive pathways to enlarge the scale of getting Cocaine Anonymous information into our local services.
