Chronic Pain Anonymous (CPA) is a fellowship of men and women from all walks of life who live with chronic pain and chronic illness.
The members come together to share their experience, strength, and hope, and to support each other. They learn how to discover serenity and a meaningful life while living with the disabling effects of their physical health conditions. The only requirement for membership is a desire to recover from the emotional and spiritual debilitation of chronic pain and chronic illness.
CPA was founded in 2004 in Baltimore Maryland. The fellowship today has meetings worldwide. Along with local face-to-face groups, CPA has meetings that can be attended virtually from anywhere, which makes it possible for all members to participate. They invite everyone to explore the website, attend a meeting, read the literature, and discover how CPA can provide support to live comfortably, peacefully and joyfully with yourself and others when living with chronic pain and chronic illness.
CPA offers face to face meetings, video/online meetings, phone meetings and chatrooms.
