MWI Newcomers Workshop
Welcome to OA! We know that you may have lots of questions about how to recover from compulsive overeating. So we’ve created a workshop just for newcomers! We will share information about the program such as explaining what the 12 steps are, how OA meetings work, and how to get connected with fellows in recovery who can help you on your journey.
When: Last Sunday of every month, 1:30-2:30pm Eastern (U.S.)
Where: Zoom, we will send you the info a few days in advance
If you’re feeling hopeless, alone, or ashamed about your body or your eating, we know how you feel and we have been to those dark places. But we have also recovered and it is our joy to share with you the solution that we have found.
Sign up with the button below, and please share any questions you may have so that we can be sure to address them!
Overeaters Anonymous has approximately 6,500 meetings in over 80 countries. Use the search buttons to find a face-to-face, telephone, online, or non-real-time meeting (meetings that do not meet in real time, such as loops, social media, and mobile apps).
To be registered with the WSO, OA meetings must fulfill the definition of an OA group, which means they meet to practice the Twelve Steps and Traditions of OA, welcome all who have the desire to stop eating compulsively, do not require members to practice any actions to remain a member or to share at a meeting, and as a group they have no affiliation other than OA.
What you will find at OA meetings is:
- Acceptance of you as you are now, as you were, as you will be.
- Understanding of the problems you now face — problems almost certainly shared by others in the group.
- Communication that comes as the natural result of our mutual understanding.
- Recovery from your illness.
- Power to enter a new way of life through the practice of the Twelve-Step recovery program, the belief in a power greater than yourself, and the support and companionship of the group.
What you won’t find at OA meetings:
Weigh-ins • Packaged meals • Dues • Fees • “Shoulds” • “Musts”
If you decide that you are one of us, we welcome you with open arms. Whatever your circumstances, we offer you the gift of acceptance. You are not alone anymore. Welcome to Overeaters Anonymous. Welcome home!
We are based in Greater Boston, Massachusetts, and extend our heart and our hand to anyone seeking help.
