Utah Soaring OA Intergroup

Introduction

Recovery

more..

Overeaters Anonymous (OA) helps people who struggle to control their eating habits. It is a community in which people support and guide each other towards recovery, addressing not just the physical but also the emotional and spiritual aspects of the problem. With thousands of people who have succeeded in overcoming their difficulties with food, OA offers hope to those who believe they cannot control their relationship with food. If you suspect you may have a problem with food, don’t be afraid to ask for help from OA. We provide unconditional acceptance and support to assist you on your journey towards recovery.

Our Purpose

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 individuals who have struggled with compulsive eating disorders. Our group is open to anyone who wants to quit eating this way. Our members come in all shapes and sizes, from very heavy to underweight. We’ve all experienced different symptoms, like obsessing over our bodies, binge eating, not being able to stop eating, working out excessively, making ourselves vomit, taking diuretics or laxatives, and turning to food for solace. Some of us have constantly thought about food or daydreamed about eating. If you need help with compulsive eating, we’re here for you.

Member Thoughts

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.

Independence

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.

Is Overeaters Anonymous for me?

If you think you may have a problem with compulsive eating, you can attend an OA meeting to see if the program may help you. You can find meeting information here on our website or contact us through email,  oautah.org@gmail.com , or phone or text at  801-997-0548. The only requirement to join OA is a desire to stop compulsive eating.
