Subject: CoDA: Support For When There Isn't A Near By Meeting
Date: April 9th 2020

We're writing today to share 2 CoDA resources with you that you may not be aware of. Both are especially valuable if you live in an area with few meetings or even if you just feel like you need a meeting & there isn't one available at the moment.

Most of us attend in person meetings; many of us have a sponsor & reach out to other members of the fellowship by phone or in person for support. Here are 2 additional options you may not be aware of:

1. The CoDA Alternative meetings. There are both telephone meetings & internet (chat room style) meetings every day at several times!

The phone meetings:

You can see what's available & get information on joining a phone or online meeting here:

 The Phone meetings:

 The online meetings:

Please note there are several pages of listings for both. You can access additional listings by clicking on a page number at the bottom.

For information on joining a meeting, please click on the meeting's name.

Several of the online meetings are also non USA based!


Now for the 2nd resource: The CoDA Online Forums!

The forums are an online message board where you can communicate with other CoDA members; both when you're looking to give or receive support or just to say "hi" to like minded people in recovery. There are also chat rooms. There are instructions at the link above how to join. I've personally seen some great examples of Experience, Strength & Hope posted here, & the forum is open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day!

We hope you'll check these out, & especially share these great resources with your CoDA friends.

                              Thank You,
