Do any of your clients:
- Continue to eat compulsively in spite of medical advice to control their weight?
- Find that they cannot stop bingeing, purging, or restricting?
- Find their efforts repeatedly ending in demoralizing failure, despite firm resolutions?
- Have weight concerns, body image issues, food attitudes, or behaviors that
cause health problems?
Overeaters Anonymous can help!
Overeaters Anonymous believes these men and women may be compulsive eaters. Like alcoholics and drug addicts, they suffer from what we in OA regard as a physical, emotional, and spiritual disease. In our experience, compulsive overeating cannot be cured, but it can be arrested. OA is a worldwide Fellowship, open to all who have the desire to stop eating compulsively. Compulsive eating behaviors may include overeating, under-eating, bingeing, purging, or any combination of these actions. OA’s approach can enhance—not replace— existing treatment programs for those already under medical supervision.
