Members Only Content
In CoDA the only requirement for membership is a desire for healthy and loving relationships, and in Women Empowering Women CoDA, we have added the requirement that members must identify as female. The group was founded from a desire to have a safe community of women to walk their journey of recovery together. We have built a strong group of women who support each other by adhering to the guidance of our CoDA material. Our website is for our CoDA recovery and since it is not a part of the "meeting", we will use this member only content page to post power points from our meetings as resources for our members. There will also be added video content that will be easy to access by our members on step-work, etc.
As the founder of Women Empowering Women Support Groups and CoDA being the first of those support groups, it gives me such joy to share what I and others have found in our own journey toward a life that is no longer filled with unhealthy relationships and emptiness. We have learned to LIVE our lives and the vast majority of us have needed outside resources for maintaining and further addressing our codependency. We have a sister site and support group called "The Next Step" where we have group meetings, workshops, professional leaders, resources, etc. that are specifically catered to those who are women. However, this page will consist of supplemental information that is not found in our CoDA material...NOT to replace it! This site will only pertain to codependency patterns, characteristics, and only subject matter pertaining to codependency.
Members committed to their recovery attend our meetings weekly, work the program or plan to, contribute in some way either online or otherwise to CoDA. Our recovery as a group depends on contributions by our members (yes even 1$ helps). When this group met in person we had donations weekly, since we moved to Zoom meetings we have had a drop in donations substantially. The website and the material presented in our meetings, chips for recovery, pamphlets and marketing takes money to sustain. We also share a portion of our donations to our CoDA Intergroup which helps our region, state, national & international survival as a group.
If you attend meetings, contact the group leader at the meeting you attend...provide them with your email information and request to be added to the member only site. You will be given a password for access. A donation is suggested of $20 a month and will provide you with all of the member only content...give more or less...it is up to you. We do however either need you to attend a meeting and become active in our group, or pay a monthly fee to support our survival as a CoDA group for women.
