to Healthcare Professionals
Do you have patients whose weight, body image, food attitudes, or behaviors cause health problems?
Overeaters Anonymous does not concern itself with the medical aspects of obesity, but with the nature of compulsive overeating. The OA program can enhance - not replace - medical care or any other existing treatment programs.
OA members find recovery on all three levels, physical, emotional and spiritual, by following a Twelve-Step program patterned after that of Alcoholics Anonymous. Members who recover through the Twelve Steps find that yo-yo dieting is a thing of the past. They no longer wish to return to compulsive overeating.
OA speakers are available to attend health classes in schools, health fairs or any facilities where the community can benefit from our experience, strength and hope in the OA program. We can share our own recovery stories and any supply the necessary literature.
If you would like to request a speaker, please email Paradee99@aol.com or contact the Suffolk County Intergroup at 631-260-6615.
