What can you do?

What can you do if your loved one is a compulsive eater?
Here are some good ways to begin:

  • Read Overeaters Anonymous (OA) Literature to learn more about compulsive eating and how OA can help your loved one. (Tip: To the Family of the Compulsive Eater pamphlet is a good one.)
    • Please be aware that the compulsive eater is typically the last to know and accept their disease – practicing compassion and understanding are important factors in this sensitive matter.
  • Attend an open meeting as an observer (we ask that only those who self-identify as a compulsive eater share at meeting level) and to meet some of our members. Or, feel free to give us a call at (408) 940-6278, or to send us an email at: info@oasv.org

WANT TO GET TO KNOW OA?
At OASV we have a solution that not only addresses the obsession with food, but that offers a design for living that really works – and we have no dues or fees for membership!

To gain a better understanding of who we are and how we can help your loved one, register to attend a FREE “Newcomer Night” from 6-8pm, Pacific time – available dates:

  • Thursday, April 29, 2021
  • Wednesday, July 28, 2021
  • Tuesday, September 28, 2021

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Within OA Silicon Valley, all of our face-to-face and Zoom meetings are “open.”  At open meetings anyone may attend, however we ask that only those that self-identify as compulsive eaters participate through sharing when time is allotted to do so (but only if they are interested in doing so – there is no obligation to share – participation is invited, but never required).
