Why is service part of recovery?

Those who have gone before us recognize that service is critical to recovery and is part of the Twelfth step. Service work is a place to practice recovery skills and extend our recovery to new areas of our lives. At the group level, CoDA members carry the message in many ways, by sharing in meetings, speaking to newcomers (with a focus on providing information rather than giving advice) and trying to adhere to CoDA principles in meetings and elsewhere in their lives. Members can start practicing these types of service from early on in their recovery.

NSC Public Information

“Public information” is the term used by many 12-Step fellowships for approved procedures and literature for outreach work to professionals, institutions, and the public at large. 

CoDAUK Public Information Team are looking for new committee members to engage in a range of tasks defined across committee and region level. Our primary aim is an application of Step 12. We aim to carry the message to other co-dependents through outreach within the recovery space, with CoDA regions, and beyond.
So far this has looked like preparing ideas for a new CoDAUK poster, documenting CoDAUK digital footprint, writing a survey for the coDA membership, and reach out to organisations and teams in the recovery space.
If you would be interested in joining the team reach out to to find out more.
