2021 IS THE YEAR OF SERVICE!
Service is the Cornerstone of Step 12

2021 Has Been Declared The CoDA Year of Service

Some have personally found doing service to be a great way to learn to set boundaries and say no when we need or want to. Especially early on, some need to learn what limits are, and service in CoDA is a great way to practice in a safe environment. It’s also an excellent way to learn about the 12 Traditions, make new friends in recovery, practice the 3rd tradition by actively coming to consensus & group conscience in a healthy and respectful manner, learn how to encourage & participate in building a healthy consensus, and help to ensure CoDA’s continued health and presence – and to just plain enjoy some fun & fellowship!

Why do Service Work?

We give back because we have received, and in so doing, we continue to carry the CoDA message to other codependents who still suffer. 

Interested?  Please consider serving your local meeting, and the North Texas CoDA Community.  There are also opportunities in CoDA Texas as well as CoDA World
