Overeaters Anonymous (OA) is a community that supports people who struggle with food behaviors. We want to help anyone who feels they have a problem with food, and they welcome everyone from different backgrounds and experiences. Together, they work towards finding freedom from the cycle of compulsive eating in a safe and inclusive space.
OA started in 1960 in Hollywood, California, USA, with the aim of helping people with compulsive eating. The idea came from Rozanne S. who attended a Gamblers Anonymous meeting and realized that the Twelve Steps format could help her overcome her own struggles. Rozanne S. wanted to create a supportive community where everyone could help each other find a better future. Today, OA is a worldwide organization that has helped many people find hope and healing from their struggles with food.
Overeaters Anonymous helps people who have problems with compulsive eating. They have groups in 75 countries that meet in person or on the phone or internet. They’ve helped people for 60 years and believe recovery is possible. Their members support one another through this difficult journey. If you struggle with food issues, you can join their community.
