Overeaters Anonymous (OA) is a Fellowship of individuals who, through shared experience, strength and hope, are recovering from compulsive eating behaviors.
Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviors and to carry the message of recovery through the Twelve Steps of OA to those who still suffer.(Adopted by theWorld Service Conferenceof Overeaters Anonymous, © 2015.)
We welcome anyone 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.
Hear a 5-minute excerpt from Hearing is Believing, an inspiring collection of interviews depicting the journeys of several OA members from despair to recovery and serenity. Read more about recovery. It is here for you.

An OA group ought never endorse, finance, or lend the OA name to any related facility or outside enterprise, lest problems of money, property, and prestige divert us from our primary purpose.
Consequently, any reference or use herein to any specific commercial product, process, or service by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, or otherwise, does not constitute or imply its endorsement or recommendation.
