OUR STORY: About

What are WEW Support Groups?
We are a group of women in CoDA and/or ACA who volunteer to lead online meetings. We began as a CoDA in-person meeting in 2016 and went to online in 2020. We are no different from any other group meeting, except we use this website to communicate with our members and visitors and make sure access to the meetings is up to date and on the homepage. We are a community "center" for meetings to be held, and as women start other women-only twelve-step meetings, they will be added here. We have Group Conscience meetings regularly and post information on the homepage. We have a blog written by members who submit their articles as another form of sharing. Women Empowering Women Support Groups is our website name for our twelve-step groups; please understand that each meeting runs by volunteers who sign up to do so. We do not govern; we use the 12 Traditions to guide our meetings. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to email@example.com.
From Our Groups Founder
I needed a CoDA group exclusive to women to feel safe in meetings, especially to share. I was shocked that we did not have one available in my area.
It was dangerous for me when I started going to CoDA meetings. I was being controlled by and manipulated by my partner at that time. I held back in fear many times during the meeting because I did not want men to hear me or know what was happening to me. I spoke to several women in our group, and they agreed that it would be helpful to have a group exclusively for women...and CoDA WEW was born.
Thanks to CODA, my life is not only healthier, but I am happier than ever. I have the joy of living the "promises" every day, and the program saved my life. I am grateful to see so many women, including my precious sponsees, find healthy lives and relationships for the first time. I know the CoDA groups will continue to grow, and we will share our experience, strength, and hope for many years.
Another aspect I love about CoDA is that there is only one requirement for membership, the desire to have healthy relationships with yourself and others.
Who doesn't want that?
So, if you are ready to experience a supportive community of incredible women seeking happier and healthier lives & relationships, then you have found your new home!"
We have added Adult Children of Alcoholics and Dysfunctional Families (ACA); it is trauma-informed and focuses work on our Inner Child and healing deep wounds from our childhood.
In ACA, I found comfort and acceptance, unlike any other group I have been a part of. My inner child work was challenging and made worse by my trauma. My fellow travelers helped me to find peace and reconcile with my childhood. I started the ACA group because it has profoundly helped me in my recovery journey and incorporates codependency recovery in its updated materials. The groups have taken off, and I hope you review this program when considering what is best for your journey of self-discovery and healing.
Everyone's path to self-discovery and learning to love ourselves is as unique as we are. Our goal is to honor WHERE you are today and WHERE you want to be. These programs helped me find my way home to my true self, and I am happier and healthier. I remain in the programs because recovery is not a linear process, not a goal to be reached. Recovery is a process that takes attention and care. Recovery makes my life what it is today, a dash of serenity.
My mission is to help other women find their serenity using this online meeting platform and reach as many women as possible. If you are still suffering, I send you love and light; if you are working on the program, I wish you compassion and grace. If you are a member, thank you for being part of this fantastic community, contributing to your presence in the rooms, your service, and, most importantly, sharing your experience, strength, and hope with others.
With Love and Service-
