Abstinence and Recovery 

OA’s Abstinence and Recovery Policy was amended at WSBC 2021. 
“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 working and living the Overeaters Anonymous Twelve Step program on a daily basis.”
