CoDA is a 12-step program to attain healthy, functional relationships. "Codependents tend to be overly concerned with another person's problem and ignore their own wants and needs while taking extraordinary care of the other person. If you are new to CoDA you may be wondering 'Am I codependent?'. At CoDA, we offer no definition or diagnostic criterion for codependence. What we do offer is a list of patterns and characteristics as a tool to aid in self-evaluation."
