New abstinence & recovery descriptions

Following the delegates’ decision at World Service Business Conference 2021 to revise OA’s Abstinence and Recovery Policy, all suggested meeting formats on have been revised to include the new policy language:

“Abstinence is the action of refraining from compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviors while working towards or maintaining a healthy body weight.

“Spiritual, emotional, and physical recovery is the result of living and working the Overeaters Anonymous Twelve Step program on a daily basis.”
