In the series Our Primary Purpose, you will hear about the Disease of Mind, Body and Spirit; Plans of Eating, Tools, Abstinence, How to sponsor; the 12 Principles, 12 Steps, 12 Freedoms, Strong Meetings and Recovery from Relapse. Members share their experience strength and hope to bring the Twelve-Step program of Overeaters Anonymous to life.

  • Sound Bites from Overeaters Anonymous: A 12-Step Solution to Compulsive Eating “Sound Bites from Overeaters Anonymous (OA)” was an Internet radio show that aired October 17, 2012 to January 9, 2013 on VoiceAmerica.com. It is dedicated to educating you about recovery from compulsive eating using OA’s 12-step program, so you recognize the symptoms and find the support you need and a program that works to help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight. In OA, you’ll find acceptance and understanding; support and companionship from others who have similar challenges; and a transformation to physical, emotional and spiritual well being. In this 13-episode series, you will hear the experience, strength and hope of people who struggled and found recovery and a new life in Overeaters Anonymous.
