OA’s Tools of Recovery: Telephone

Many members call, text, or email their sponsors and other OA members daily. Telephone or electronic contact also provides an immediate outlet for those hard-to-handle highs and lows we may experience.

How often do you use calling, texting, or email to reach out to your sponsor or OA buddies? How does reaching out benefit you and others in recovery?

Listen to OA’s Nine Tools of Recovery Podcast for more.

Call For Authors! Write for Letters of Hope

Share your experience, strength, and hope with your fellow members of OA.  Letters of Hope is accepting submissions.

Not sure what to write?  Consider sharing your story of what brought you to OA, how your sponsor or OA helped you through a particularly difficult time, or what you would tell a newcomer about OA.  Anything related to recovery through OA is appropriate.  OA and its members have been lifesavers for most-if not all-of us.  Sharing through Letters of Hope is a form of service – one of OA’s Tools of Recovery.

Please email any submissions or questions to our Letters of Hope Chair, Delia, at delia@deliagonzaleslaw.com.
