Evie found Codependents Anonymous (CoDA) when CoDA was just a year old and has been working her CoDA recovery program for almost 35 years. She has done service throughout most of that time at every level of the Fellowship which has supported her recovery growth. She found CoDA after many years of therapy and other personal development efforts and believes that CoDA and the 12 steps has given her the most important tools she needed to heal her relationships, especially with members of her family of origin. For 31 of those years Evie was in a committed relationship/marriage with another member of CoDA. Their relationship went through many periods of struggle and, thanks to their CoDA recovery program, it became truly loving and supportive as they supported each other in their ongoing recovery journey.
