Welcome! This site is dedicated to everyone who struggles with issues of codependence. Newcomers to CoDA are welcome at all meetings unless indicated otherwise.  

Upcoming conference on Saturday 11 November in Walnut Creek:    Conference Flyer

You can represent your meeting at the local, regional, and world level by attending Bay Area CoDA Intergroup via Zoom and learn about open service opportunities.

We've added a new non-conference-approved document on handling "13th Stepping" at meetings (under Resources at left margin).

NOTICE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic some of the listed in-person meetings may still be suspended. Inquiries can be made via contact listings for specific meetings. Phone meetings should be particularly useful during this period, also there are virtual meetings held via Zoom - check the county listings or email to get passwds.
As in-person meetings look to resume, an indicator symbol "=" will identify such a resumption. IF YOUR MEETING HAS RESUMED IN-PERSON STATUS, please contact the Webmaster or leave message at 415-905-6331. Thank you for helping keep yourself and our communities safe.


If you are new to Co-Dependents Anonymous (CoDA), please visit our International 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. A notable resource that seems to be increasing in popularity is the phone meeting, follow this link to view those listings at the International CoDA website. Here is a printable listing some of those phone meetings with times adjusted to Pacific Time (PT). These are the 30 Questions, a resource for working the first three steps of CoDA.

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.
