About OA

The primary purpose of Overeaters Anonymous is to carry the message of recovery from compulsive eating to those who still suffer. Each time an OA member shares his or her experience, strength and hope with another compulsive eater, recovery begins.

Groups and service bodies help carry the OA message throughout the world. An OA meeting provides a place where members can achieve recovery and share it with others. This section offers resources to help ensure that meetings are strong, recovery is sure, and the hand of OA is there for those who reach for help.
