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!

Welcome Back: A New Beginning

The “Welcome Back: A New Beginning” workshop is a way to help your Intergroup reach out to the compulsive eater who has left the halls. 

To help you out, here are a proposed format, a list of helpful hints to hold a “Welcome Back” workshop and some topics for discussion during your workshop.  Scholarships may be available if your Intergroup needs financial help to hold the workshop; email for scholarship information.
