About OA

“Overeaters Anonymous (OA) 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 due 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 organizations, political movements, ideology, or religious doctrine; we take no position on outsite issues. Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive overeating and to carry this message of recovery to those who still suffer.”
