Co-Dependents Anonymous is 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.
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.
Great guide to recovery from Copendence
The CoDa book is to Codependence Annonymous, as The "Big Book" is to AA. This books has great descriptions of codependent behavior, and the tools to help one to achieve healthy relationships. The twelve steps as adapted from AA, work beautifully on just about any type of problem or disfunction, including Codependence. The steps are presented with in depth discussion and helpful tools to aid in the journey of "working" the steps. The stories in the back of the book present many success stories from people of all walks of life who have begun recovery from Codependence. The stories are powerful and raw, and can be related to by just about any codependent. While there are now many books on the subject, this one is the must have as a companion to the fellowship of Codependents Anonymous.
