Twelfth Step Within

The Region Six 12th Step Within Committee invites your intergroup to engage in important 12th Step Within action. Mobilize as many OA members possible within your meetings to telephone those still-suffering OA members on the 12th day of each month. To find more info on OA’s 12th Step Within page please click here.

Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive eating and carry the message of recovery through the Twelve Steps of OA to those who still suffer.
