What Are Meetings Like?
Overeaters Anonymous is a group that helps people with problem behaviors related to food. At meetings, we come together to find peace and support, especially if we’ve had a tough day. The meetings help us feel hopeful and remind us of the strategies we use to cope with our disorder.
Overeaters Anonymous meetings are gatherings of two or more compulsive eaters—overeaters, bulimics, anorexics, and others suffering from eating disorders—who come together to share their personal experience and the strength and hope OA has given them. They are usually held once a week and run from an hour to an hour and a half. Although there are many types of meetings, fellowship with other compulsive eaters is the basis of them all.
Overeaters Anonymous helps people who have problems with compulsive eating. They have groups in 75 countries that meet in person or on the phone or internet. They’ve helped people for 60 years and believe recovery is possible. Their members support one another through this difficult journey. If you struggle with food issues, you can join their community. You’ll get support from people who understand what you’re going through. The website has a lot of information, so you can explore and learn more. You’ll find helpful resources to get started, like the “Welcome to the Newcomer” and “OA Utah Soaring Newcomer Packet” located on the recovery materials page. . Join Overeaters Anonymous and let’s work towards a brighter future together.
