Twelfth Step work isn’t only about introducing the OA program of recovery to those compulsive eaters who have never heard of OA. Among us, we have still-suffering compulsive eaters who are already in the rooms. Members in relapse and those who may have taken a break from program and meetings suffer greatly and are in need of a caring connection and our support. 

The Region Six 12th Step Within Committee invites intergroups to engage in important 12th Step Within action!
