Service

Here is where you can learn about everything LA CoDA does to support local meetings. LA CoDA has several standing subcommittees, and occasional ad-hoc committees, that rely on volunteers to carry out the will of the fellowship. Each subcommittee has a chair that facilitates subcommittee work using the group conscious process and reports to LA CoDA monthly with updates on the subcommittee’s work. Service subcommittees are a great place to practice healthier recovery tools instead of our old behaviors when it comes to decision-making, dividing the work load, not getting our way, and conflict resolution, as well as a way to repay CoDA for our individual recovery. Check to see each subcommittee below for information about when and where they meet. All of the contacts are @lacoda.org

Tradition 7 reminds us that CoDA is self-supporting through contributions of service from its own members. Although many of us are recovering from doing too much or helping for the wrong reasons, we learn in recovery that practicing healthy service, not avoiding service, is the path to healing.
