Forums: Looking for a sponsor
Posted by Steve on Aug 22, 2013 in Sponsorship
my name is Steve. I have just recently found Coda and am grateful for it, but am looking to make the next step in working the program and getting better from here. What is the process in getting a sponsor? Just approaching someone after a meeting?

Based on my reading of literature and my experience in the program, the typical process is the newcomer approaching someone whose recovery they admire after a meeting and asking that person if they can serve as a sponsor. Some meetings also pass around phone lists that have a category listing people who are willing to sponsor, and newcomers can call one of them.
