TRG's 12 Step Newcomers Orientation program is for compulsive eaters who want to share their experience, strength and hope with one another through a program using the Twelve Steps TRG has adapted from the original 12 Steps which began with AA in 1936. The gift of abstinence, attendance of online meetings, doing service for others, reading shares from others in recovery and sharing our thoughts and feelings back is what makes this program work. NEWCOMERSTORECOVERY is one part of TRG's 4-Part Newcomer's Program 12STEPNEWCOMERANONYMOUS ~ The Orientation group in which there is sharing only on the Topic Leader's shares and questions. NEWCOMERS TO RECOVERY ~ An informal group for general sharing of one's experience, strength and hope. NEWCOMERS MEETINGS ~ There are many 12 Step Meetings available including face- to-face, telephone and online. NEWCOMERS SPONSORS: We encourage all newcomers to have a sponsor. Please read: www.therecoverygroup.org/sponsors.html Newcomers to Recovery is a large, informal group of men and women from around the world who are finding solutions to their eating disorder by working the 12 Step program of recovery. The 12 Step "Language of the Heart" is spoken here. On the first of each month, we also have a 4-week orientation session and we ask newcomers to participate in that. Details will be sent to Newcomers to Recovery members. The mission of NewcomersToRecovery is to inspire all the members to shares with group regularly in order to teach them how to share appropriately, to develop a plan of eating and to get a sponsor.
