Welcome to CoDependents Anonymous
Co-Dependents Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women whose common problem is a difficulty in maintaining functional relationships. We share with each other in the hopes of solving our common problems and helping others to recover. The only requirement for membership is a desire for healthy and fulfilling relationships with ourselves and others. Coda is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organisation or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. We rely upon the wisdom, knowledge, Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions, as adopted for our purpose from Alcoholics Anonymous, as the principles of our programme and guide to living healthy lives. Although separate entities, we should always co-operate with all twelve step recovery programmes.
If you are new to CoDA and would like to find out more,
a good place to start is by reading this leaflet ‘Am I CoDependant?’.
The next step would be to attend a CoDA meeting, details of which can be found by visiting our ‘Find A Meeting’ page. It is suggested, if you are new, that you attend at least six meetings to find out if CoDA is right for you. The way our meetings operate is that you do not need to register, call in advance or “join” formally, all you do is simply turn up before the advertised meeting start time. If you then decide CoDA is for you by continuing to attend meetings you become a member for which there are no fees.
CoDA UK as the name suggests, is the UK arm of a worldwide fellowship.
