About CoDA New to CoDA

The Preamble of Co-Dependents Anonymous

Codependents Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women whose common problem is a difficulty in maintaining functional relationships.

We share with one another in the hopes of solving our common problem and helping others to recover. The only requirement for membership is a desire for healthy and fulfilling relationships with others and ourselves. 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 and Twelve Traditions, as adapted 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 other twelve step programmes
