At Overeaters Anonymous, we claim no medical, nutritional, or psychological expertise. Rather, we recommend that our members contact qualified professionals for help in these areas. OA’s Twelve Step approach to our common malady of compulsive eating can enhance – not replace – existing treatment programs for those already under medical supervision.
But don’t take our word for it … here are some stats to back up our claims:
Several seasoned eating disorder professionals have come to rely on OA as a valued partner and resource in recovery. For many professionals, and especially those within the healthcare community, doing so has made all the difference. Rather than an endless cycle of repeated relapses driven by isolating behaviors common to disordered eaters, their patients have come to experience greater satisfaction and long-term recovery.
For many professionals that work with disordered eaters in a wide variety of settings, OA serves as a welcome support group in combination with professional intervention. Typically, this can prove to be a real game changer.
