Many of us have, at times, felt like a child impersonating an adult, of feeling “little” in a grown up body, of over-reacting to small affronts, o ...Continue Reading

CoDA: 13th Stepping

February 15th 2019

13TH STEPPING A member reported: “I watched a member of the opposite sex repeatedly use recovery to flirt with newcomers. No one felt comfortable speaking up and I thought it was wrong. “ “In recovery, manipulating another into a relationship, be it emotional, financial, or sexual, violates the core values and Twelve Traditions of our program. “Thirteenth Stepping” is a term used to describe this kind of unhealthy relationship. Thirteenth-stepping is harmful to both people involved and to the overall health of a mee ...Continue Reading

Sponsorship In CoDA

January 26th 2019

SPONSORSHIP IN CoDA Sponsorship in CoDA is essentially different from sponsorship in other 12 step groups because of the nature of the disease of codependence. To be effective, CoDA sponsorship depends on the development of healthy boundaries on control issues such as advice-giving, care-taking, and rescuing. Giving feedback as sponsors, we can develop skills to be honest without advising, lecturing, or being verbally abusive. Sponsorship is a tool of recovery that helps the process of healing. It is not a requiremen ...Continue Reading
