Building an interactive CoDA community is an important element of our mission - thereby encouraging and supporting healthy meetings through the region. Tools include interactive website discussion pages discussing issues and an exchange of ideas between those actively or wanting to be involved in giving back to the community. More
Sponsors are people within the CoDA program who help guide us through the Twelve Step recovery process. These people are recovering codependents whose personal recovery is their first priority. They’ve usually walked the road of recovery longer than we have. More
Working the program is a phrase you may often hear as you begin to attend meetings. Perhaps the best to begin with your recovery is to start with taking "baby steps," no matter how small. CoDA is not therapy - rather a spiritually oriented program adopted from Alcoholics Anonymous with a focus on building healthy relationships.
Comprised of a group of volunteers and representatives from throughout the region, GSACC meets once each month to empower and promote the general welfare of CoDA meetings. GSACC recognizes and seeks to promote the willingness and dedication of volunteers becoming involved; i.e., starting meetings, becoming a sponsor, etc. Become part of a supportive and dynamic service group.
