What is abstinence in Overeaters Anonymous? How can you use the tools of the program to achieve and maintain abstinence?

As part of OA’s strategic plan, the Region Chairs Committee has created this Abstinence PowerPoint presentation to assist your group or service body in exploring the concept of abstinence.
