Welcome to Co-Dependents Anonymous, a fellowship of men and women whose
common purpose is to develop healthy relationships. The only requirement
for membership is a desire for healthy and loving relationships.
We gather together to support and share with each other in a journey
of self-discovery -- learning to love the self. Living the program
allows each of us to become increasingly honest with ourselves about
our personal histories and our own codependent behaviors.
We rely upon the Twelve Steps and
Twelve Traditions for knowledge and wisdom.
These are the principles of our program and guides to developing honest and
fulfilling relationships with ourselves and others. In CoDA, we each learn
to build a bridge to a Higher Power of our own understanding, and we allow
others the same privilege.
In the left menu are links that assist Newcomers looking for more information on codependence.
What Is Codependency?
If you are new to CoDA you
may be wondering "Am I codependent?".
At CoDA, we offer no definition or diagnostic criterion for codependence.
What we do offer is a list of patterns and characteristics as a tool to
aid in self evaluation.
The collection of documents in the left menu are provided to assist you in your recovery. Following the
Twelve Steps will help you
realize the potential that is within you.
Keep on keeping on!
This renewal process is a gift of healing for us.
By actively working the program of Co-Dependents Anonymous, we can each realize
a new joy, acceptance and serenity in our lives. A way of knowing that
this process is occurring in our lives is to review the
Recovery Patterns of Codependency.
And you too can see the Twelve Promises come true in your life.
Once we see this process, we then take the Twelfth Step: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried
to carry this message to other codependents, and to practice these principles
in all our affairs.
