Thanks for visiting our website. We hope you will come to see us often. We are a Special Focus Loop of the Recovery Group.

We hope you will join Creative ~ a very special part of The Recovery Group. Many of us are compulsive eaters who are creative types. We use our disease as a way to escape the fear and the rewards of our creativity. Our compulsion robs us of the gifts our Higher Power has so generously bestowed upon us.

How many of us have left a project or been unable to begin one because the food had taken away our ability to express ourselves? Our souls hunger for the mere act of putting pen to paper, brush to canvas, needle and thread to fabric and yet our warped sense of needing to be “perfect” prevents us from doing this.

This loop is geared to those of us who need to express ourselves creatively, and yet struggle because of our eating compulsions.

This Loop is an open forum where we can discuss the pitfalls and glories of our creative souls and anything else we may feel a burning desire to share.

In addition to all the creativity of our members, our group has a very special mission purpose. We provide a place to work our own recovery program and also to carry that message to other creative people who suffer from compulsive eating. We are here together to build one another up ... to accept each of us as we are ... to support each other ... and not to judge one another. We offer you a place to share your particular path to recovery, in safety and serenity.

Our loop is a place where 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, you will have a safe haven where you can interact with others who are suffering. Our loop does not just focus on our physical problems. We focus on our emotional and our spiritual needs, as well as how our orientation impacts our recovery and our lives.Our recovery home is a place where we hope and believe you can experience growth spiritually, emotionally and physically. Our way of finding recovery is through the Twelve Steps. We have reached a place in our life where this may be the last stop on the bus ~ the last house on the block. And we have come to believe that there is a power greater than ourselves and that we cannot recover alone.

There is only one requirement for membership in our loop ~ the sincere desire to stop eating compulsively. If you have this desire and would like to become part of our recovery family, we welcome you with open arms. Our mission is firm ... our purpose is resolute ... our goal is to ensure a better quality of life for compulsive eaters worldwide. Through the miracle of the Twelve Steps, tools to reach and maintain a state of abstinence, one-on-one sponsors, online recovery meetings, full service loops, study loops, other special interest loops, dedicated Trusted Servants and many other tools of recovery to offer you, we will accomplish our mission, achieve our purpose and transcend our goals.

What we could never do alone ~
We can do together.

One Day at a time ~
One Step at a time.

Love in recovery,
Your Trusted Servants
