CoDA: Friday Fellowship Item #11

July 27th 2018

30 Seconds to Serenity We come to our meetings to quiet our roiling anxieties and resolve our uncertainties, and that usually happens. Sometimes, though, tragically, it doesn’t.

Some meetings have prepared themselves for this possibility by establishing the “ ...Continue Reading

Volunteer with Cphone team to help callers wanting to speak with CoDA members At the moment, there are two main ways of contacting CoDA when one has a question, phone and email.
