Healing Abuse and COE is for abuse survivors who suffer from eating disorders. We use the 12 step program of Overeaters Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous to recover from our eating disorders, while helping each other move past the abuse issues that have had such a huge impact on our lives. The only requirement to join our loop is a desire to stop compulsively overeating. We welcome all newcomers!
We are fellow sufferers in a self-help loop, not mental health or medical professionals. Members are responsible for their own recovery and mental health. Messages represent individual members, not OA or 12step4coes.Our loop has guidelines that all members must read and agree to follow:
Guideline 1: This loop is EXTREMELY CONFIDENTIAL. Messages can only be read as private email and must be treated confidentially by all members. No messages will be posted on the website. Anonymous email addresses may be used.
Guideline 2: We share our experience, strength, and hope with fellow COEs. Our aim is to build recovery with positive messages of encouragement. Both problems and their solutions may be shared, but always use courtesy and respect.
Guideline 3: Ours is a spiritual program, but each member interprets spirituality in his own way. Therefore, we use only the spiritual terms God, God of my Understanding, or Higher Power.
Guideline 4: Negative messages that put others down are "flaming" and are not allowed. Personal conflicts must be handled privately. Members who flame lose sharing privileges. Thanks for making our loop a safe place.
