Overeaters Anonymous is a Fellowship of individuals who, through shared experience, strength and hope, are recovering from compulsive overeating. We welcome everyone who wants to stop eating compulsively. There are no dues or fees for members; we are self supporting through our own contributions, neither soliciting nor accepting outside donations. OA is not affiliated with any public or private organization, political movement, ideology, or religious doctrine, we take no position on outside issues. Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive overeating and to carry this message of recovery to those who still suffer.
For the Newcomer
Whatever your problem with food, OA welcomes you. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop compulsive behavior around food: overeating, restricting, throwing up or binging, whatever! OA charges no dues or fees. We support ourselves through voluntary contributions. Many of us have found hope and no longer abuse food!
The OA program is based on the 12 steps and 12 traditions as adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous. One day at a time we use the steps, traditions, meetings, and the tools of recovery. Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive eating and to carry the message to those who still suffer. Don’t worry! You are not alone. To learn more about our program and decide if it is right for you, review OA’s 15 questions and attend some meetings.
