Recovery is just a step away
Overeaters Anonymous (OA) is a lifeline for those struggling with compulsive eating and food behaviors. Through a strong community of support, individuals can find acceptance and guidance towards recovery. We understand the struggles with food that are not just physical, but emotional and spiritual as well, and our Twelve Step program addresses all three aspects of the illness.
With tens of thousands of success stories, OA provides hope for those who feel they have lost control of their relationship with food. If you feel like you may have a problem with food, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for unconditional acceptance and support on your journey towards recovery.
Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive eating and to carry the message of recovery through the Twelve Steps of OA to those who still suffer.
We are a community of individuals in recovery from compulsive eating, brought together through shared experience, strength, and hope. We welcome anyone who desires to stop eating compulsively.
In OA you will find members who are extremely heavy, even morbidly obese, moderately overweight, average weight, or underweight.
OA members have exhibited a range of symptoms, including preoccupation with body weight, size, or shape, eating binges or grazing, inability to stop eating, excessive exercise, inducing vomiting after eating, excessive use of diuretics or laxatives, and using food as a reward or for comfort. Some members may have experienced constant preoccupation with food or have fantasies about food.
Membership in OA is free of charge and is sustained through the contributions of its members, with no outside donations accepted. The organization is independent and does not affiliate with any public or private organization, political movement, ideology, or religious doctrine. OA takes no position on external issues, focusing solely on helping members recover from compulsive eating.
If you believe that you may be struggling with compulsive eating, we encourage you to review our information and reach out to us with any questions that you may have. Attending an OA meeting can provide valuable insight into our program and help you determine whether it can benefit you. Please refer to our meetings list for details on meetings near you, including times and directions, and feel free to contact the designated meeting contact person for additional information. We are here to support you on your journey toward recovery.
