What are Meetings Like?

Utah Soaring image named meetings4Many people struggling with problem behaviors with food find support and understanding in the meetings of Overeaters Anonymous. We meet to find an hour of peace and serenity during a day that may or may not have gone too well. The purpose of the meeting is to renew our experience, strength, and hope in our program of coping with our disorder.

It can be intimidating to attend an OA meeting for the first time. Don’t let that hesitation hold you back. We have a special meeting for newcomers on Monday night but all our meetings welcome newcomers.  The special newcomer’s meeting is informal and you are invited to ask questions. It is followed by a regular meeting. Most OA meetings follow a structured format with readings, a speaker, and sharing of our experience, strength, and hope. Each meeting is unique and follows its own format. We recommend that newcomers try 5-6 meetings to decide whether OA is for them, and which meetings they prefer.

Remote Meeting Access

So, to make it possible to keep in touch and stay connected, Utah Soaring has set up a Zoom meeting room for use. For a quick introduction to participating in a Zoom meeting, download How to Attend a Zoom Meeting. The meeting number for all Zoom meetings is 410051278 (no spaces).

Table 1: Utah Soaring Meeting List

Want to Talk to Someone First?

Utah Soaring image named red phone popup e1617389058728As mentioned, just walking into a meeting could be a difficult step. Please don’t be put off. If you would prefer, call our “Hotline” number,  801-997-0548 or text, and talk to a member of Overeaters Anonymous from our area. They will be able to answer your questions about the program, tell you what it was like coming into the program, and what it has done for them.

For “Outliers”

Are you an “outlier”? We call someone who’s in an area where there are no face-to-face meetings an “outlier”. The opportunity to interact with others in a meeting environment is an invaluable tool in the program of Overeaters Anonymous. But if there are no meetings in your area or you are not able to attend meetings, what can you do? There is support available both from the Overeaters Anonymous World Service program and from us here in Utah.

First, the World Service Office of Overeaters Anonymous has lists of online and telephone meetings. Use the link to the OA website at oa.org and use their “Find a Meeting” button to their page of meetings. On the left side (or as buttons) you will see links to instructions for Telephone Meetings and Online Meetings. These are a lot of fun and you will meet people from all over the world and at any time of the day or night.

At the local level, the OA groups offer support in sending you information and helping to set up one-on-one contact with you. Call our hotline number given at the bottom of the page and leave a message that you are an outlier and are interested in OA and would like to get in touch with someone local. Eventually, you may be interested in starting an actual face-to-face meeting in your area.

Southern Utah Meetings

Meetings that are in Southern Utah and are not listed here. These meetings are affiliated with the Las Vegas Intergroup. The Las Vegas Overeaters Anonymous Intergroup provides support to OA members and affiliated groups within the Las Vegas, Nevada area including these Nevada cities: Laughlin, Mesquite & Pahrump, and these Utah cities Hurricane, St. George, and Cedar City. Please see their web page at lvoa.org for meetings and activities in that area.
