No matter how much we want to believe that the heart of co-dependency and recovery lies in the other person, the truth is that it lies in ourselves, in the way we allow other people's behaviors to affect us.  Replacing our self-worth in Christ with outside or external sources is not what God intended for you.  This group will provide tools to regain control of your life through Christ centered Bible teaching.
