Utah Soaring OA Intergroup
Overeaters Anonymous (OA) helps people who have trouble controlling their eating habits. It is a community where people support and guide each other towards recovery, addressing not only the physical but also the emotional and spiritual aspects of the problem. With thousands of people who have succeeded in overcoming their challenges with food, OA offers hope to those who feel like they cannot control their relationship with food. If you think you may have a problem with food, don’t hesitate to ask for help from OA. They offer unconditional acceptance and support to help you on your journey towards recovery.
Work the Steps
Use the Tools
Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive eating and to carry the message of recovery through the Twelve Steps of OA to those who still suffer.
Many Symptoms, the OA Solution
We are a group of people who have struggled with compulsive eating. Our group is open to anyone who wants to stop eating this way. Our members come in all shapes and sizes, from very heavy to underweight. We’ve all experienced different symptoms, such as thinking a lot about our bodies, binge eating, not being able to stop eating, working out too much, making ourselves vomit, using diuretics or laxatives, and using food for comfort. Some of us have constantly thought about food or daydreamed about it. If you need help with compulsive eating, we’re here for you.
Here are some comments by OA members on their experience with the program. We have a principle of anonymity, so we give only the first name and surname initial. Pictures are obscured so faces are not recognizable.
Overeaters Anonymous is a group that helps people who struggle with compulsive eating. It’s free to join and run by its members, so it doesn’t accept donations from outside organizations. The group is independent and doesn’t align with any specific political or religious beliefs. Their only focus is helping members overcome their compulsive eating behaviors.
