How Meetings Work..

At meetings members are able to share their experiences, thoughts, feelings and recovery with the group. There is never any obligation to share if you do not wish to. Being able to speak and be heard without interruption or feedback is a powerful healing experience for many people as is listening to others in the same way. 

To attend CoDA meetings, all you need is the willingness to work at having healthy relationships. This means that all kinds of people attend meetings. Individual members can and do have differing political, religious and other affiliations, but since these are not relevant to the business of recovery from co-dependency, no comment is made about them.

All meetings begin with an introduction which usually includes the Twelve Steps and Traditions, a welcome to newcomers, and an explanation of the format the meeting will take. There may be a speaker, or a reading of a Step or a topic. The meeting is then open for people to share their experiences, feelings and recovery with the group. There is no obligation to share if you do not wish to, whether you are a newcomer or a long-established member. Each meeting usually incorporates a collection to cover the expenses of the group (eg hire of the meeting room) but CoDA is non-profit making. The meeting will end with a special prayer, called the Serenity Prayer. After the meeting, newcomers who would like more information can use this time to have their questions answered by more established members.

No Meetings in your area?

If you cannot get to a regular CoDA meeting it is suggested that you attend open meetings of another Twelve Step Fellowship to gain an understanding of the Steps and of how recovery works, while using CODA literature to work your own program of recovery from codependency.  It is worth making the effort to travel to somewhere that has CODA meetings to make contact with others in recovery and to receive the benefits of face to face meetings.
