Welcome! This site is dedicated to everyone who struggles with issues of codependence.
If you are new to Co-Dependents Anonymous (CoDA), please visit our National Newcomers page for information on co-dependency and the recovery available through this program. There you will also find information useful in determining if you suffer from co-dependency.
Some Stories from Codependents:
Our keynote speaker from October 2011 was Evie, Chair of CoDA World, here is her story. Here also are the stories from Bob P. and Jacqui B., respectively, the opening and closing speakers from our October 2008 San Mateo Conference. And from October 2007 the stories of CoDA founders Ken and Mary.
Carrying the message to those still suffering is an essential step in our recovery. As such it is very important to us that newcomers feel welcome at their first CoDA meetings. We encourage you to comment on your experience and ways we can do better. You can contact us via the Webmaster link at bottom. Please tell us the meeting you attended: day of week, time, and city.
Thank you and welcome.
CoDA members are currently developing "30 Questions", a new piece of literture to be available as a tool for sponsorship. Feel free to download it for your use and to give feedback.
This Web site is maintained by the Bay Area CoDA Intergroup (formerly the Codependents Anonymous Bay Area Community Service Group). We serve the nine Bay Area counties touching San Francisco Bay and Santa Cruz.
It is the mission of the Bay Area CoDA Intergroup (BACI), in accordance with the 12 Traditions of CoDependents Anonymous to:
1) Serve Bay Area meetings in matters affecting other meetings or CoDA as a whole; specifically in the areas of meeting information, conferences,outreach, and literature (which we buy in quantity and have on hand at our monthly meeting to pass savings along to local CoDA members).
2) Respect the group conscience and autonomy of the meetings we serve.
3) Serve as the collective voice of the meetings we serve, to and from the Regional Committee of Northern California CoDependents Anonymous (NCC).
4) Support creation of new meetings in our area to help carry the message of CoDA.
The Bay Area CoDA Intergroup is comprised of representatives and members-at-large from the CoDA community. All groups are encouraged to send a representative -- and anybody in CoDA is welcome.
The Bay Area CoDA Intergroup meets on the 2nd Sunday of each month (no meeting in May), 10 a.m. (lasts upto 2 hours)(due to construction, on 9 November, we are instead meeting at Kaiser Fabiola , 3801 Howe St., Room G70 in Oakland) at Summit Hospital, Providence Pavilion, 3100 Summit St., Oakland 94609.
From the main entrance of Providence Pavilion, take the first right into cafeteria, then through the double doors into the Conference Room.
From east I-580 take Webster Street/Broadway exit: left on Webster, right on Hawthorne, left on Summit (Providence Pavilion on the left).
Please e-mail the Webmaster with any questions, corrections, or additions.
