News & Announcements

PLEASE NOTE:  Because of the outbreak of the Coronavirus, most, if not all, face-to-face meetings have been cancelled.  Instead, a number of the meetings have become phone or virtual meetings.

NOTE:  We are not providing the links to Zoom meetings.  Contact the host listed to receive the link, the meeting ID, and the password.

Would you like to host a weekly OA Zoom meeting?  This would be similar to having the “key” to a location to open the meeting.  Send an email to webmaster@oasouthernaz.org to become a Meeting Host.  To review what that entails, please click HERE to download a copy of the Guide.

Outreach calls will be an important way for us to feel connected.  Also, look into going to a non-local Phone Meeting or an Online Meeting listed on the OA website.

You can also attend a non-real-time meeting.  These meetings may take place over a period of hours or days. Examples of non-real-time meetings are email or bulletin loops, social media pages, bulletin boards or forums, and mobile applications.

Welcome Home!

Whatever your problem with food, we welcome you. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop eating (or not eating!) compulsively: overeating, grazing (eating throughout the day), restricting, throwing up or binging, whatever! Overeaters Anonymous is free. We support ourselves through voluntary member contributions.  There is hope! Many of us have found hope and no longer abuse food!

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 eating and compulsive food behaviors and to carry the message of recovery through the Twelve Steps of OA to those who still suffer.

More about OA: 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.
