Co-Dependents Anonymous (CoDAŽ) was established in 1986 as a self-help recovery program for individuals coping with co-dependency. Co-dependency is a compulsive, self-destructive behavior, characterized by an inability to maintain functional relationships, and may include a history of addiction. CoDAŽ is a non-professional organization, and is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution. Its group activities are patterned after twelve-step recovery programs. Group meetings have been established in 49 states and 10 countries.


CoDAŽ publishes literature, including informational brochures, and tapes about co-dependency and its program. A starter packet is available at a nominal fee for individuals interested in establishing a group. Serial publication: Co-NNECTIONS (newsletter), quarterly.
