Overeaters Anonymous (OA) is a community of people who support each other to recover from compulsive eating and food behaviors. We welcome everyone who feels they have a problem with food.
The first meeting of Overeaters Anonymous was held in Hollywood, California, USA on January 19, 1960. Rozanne S. attended a Gamblers Anonymous meeting two years earlier to help a friend and realized the format of the Twelve Steps meeting might hold an answer to her own addictive behavior as it related to food. Her vision of how this simple program could bring recovery to all those who suffered from compulsive overeating resulted in this worldwide organization that exists today.
There are OA groups in over 75 countries meeting in person, via telephone, and through the internet each week. OA’s 60-year history has shown that it is possible to recover from the disease of compulsive eating. We invite you to join us to find the freedom that many of our members have discovered over the years.
There is a lot of information about Overeaters Anonymous here on the website. The menu to your left can help you get started. There is more detailed information located on the recovery Materials page. Of particular interest is the Welcome to the Newcomer and OA Utah Soaring Newcomer Packet.
We will send you a monthly newsletter with short recovery articles, OA information, and upcoming events.
