- CoDA’s Twelve Traditions as Guides to Service Work – Offers reflections on how traditions can be incorporated into service work, and guiding questions to consider as part of a reflective “service work inventory”
- CoDA Public Information Resources – Lists regional, national and world resources for CoDA-approved materials, such as those created for healthcare professionals and institutions, and lists suggested materials for distribution
- CoDA Communications Guidelines – Distills guidelines from the CoDA Fellowship Service Manual, including those on anonymity and use of social media, as they apply to outreach work
Before Engaging in Outreach or Other Service: Please review CoDA’s Twelve Service Concepts, which guide our service work as a fellowship.
Outreach service can provide a valuable opportunity to try something new; to share our experience, strength, and hope with others; and to learn to let go of expectations. As codependents, we may inadvertently give to others at the expense of ourselves. If so, a healthy balance can often be achieved with guidance. It is suggested that you check in with your Higher Power and a sponsor or recovery friends to make sure the level of service work you are considering is healthy for you.
