What is OA?
Overeaters Anonymous is a Fellowship of individuals who have a common problem: compulsive eating. We join together to share experience, strength and hope with one another to solve this problem and to help other compulsive overeaters to do the same.
The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop eating compulsively. There are no dues or fees for OA membership. We are self supporting through our own contributions. Our goal is to abstain from compulsive eating one day at a time. We do this through regular contact with other members, OA meetings, and by following the Twelve-Step program of Alcoholics Anonymous, changing only the words "alcohol" and "alcoholic" to "food" and "compulsive overeater".
The address for OA headquarters is:
