Overeaters Anonymous is a fellowship of individuals who, through shared experience, strength and hope, are recovering from compulsive eating. 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.
In OA you'll find members who are extremely overweight, even morbidly obese, moderately overweight, average weight or underweight.
The symptoms are as varied as our membership: Obsession with body weight, size or shape. Eating binges or grazing. Inability to stop eating. Preoccupation with diets. Starving. Excessive exercise. Inducing vomiting after eating. Excessive use of diuretics and laxatives. Fantasies about food. Constant preoccupation with food. Using food as a reward or for comfort.
The only requirement for OA membership is a desire to stop eating compulsively.
Please take the time to look over our information, contact us with any questions, and if you think you may be one of us please attend a meeting. See our Meetings list for times and directions and feel free to call the meeting contact person for more details or with any questions. You can also email us at OA questions.
